Dance Studio Raises Thousands For Sandy Victims

Show was held at Barnegat High School.

A fundraising performance hosted by Denise Honeycutt's students of the 'Bee-Cause' Dance Company brought in about $2800 for  Restore the Shore. 

"We had families that were devastated by this, two of the little girls lost their homes, but they still made it to their rehearsals," Honeycutt, who is artistic director for Dance Expressions Barnegat, said in an interview with Patch. "We have little girls as young as 4 years old and up to 15 or 16 years old, doing 10 numbers, and every penny collected is going to Restore the Shore."

Both Krystal and Kayla Harriott, current Barnegat residents who formerly lived in Brick and lost their homes in the storm, said they were so happy that their company held a performance last week to raise funds for those affected by Sandy.

Kayla, age 8, said she loves her dancing class with Honeycutt, and she is excited about performing. She was especially excited because this show because it had holiday themes to it. "I like the holidays," she said.

So proud of Miss Denise and these Amazing kids. Both of my daughters have been dancing with her for quite sometime now and there isn't a day that they never want to go to dance class. They love Miss Denise, they love going to Dance Expressions and they' love being part of the Bee Cause Dance Company! Maria D.
