It’s a Wrap! And it’s the best Christmas present ever with the announcement that VSA’s Dancin’ Duo – Max Dingeman and Jennifer Howard – are the winners of the 2011 Swingshift and the Stars Dance-Off for Charity!

Max and Jenn captured the hearts of the judges and the audience, scoring perfect 10’s from all four judges, not once, but TWICE! VSA arts/ Grand Traverse Area friends and supporters showed their enthusiasm at the ballot box, and helped our nonprofit organization surpass our fundraising goal by raising over $29,500.

Among the most important benefits to VSA is the public awareness of our mission and local programming for children and adults with special needs.

We extend our heartfelt appreciation to Max and Jenn for their hard work and hours of practice, to our sponsors and army of donors and volunteers and to our wonderful community.

VSA art’s message of inclusivity for all ages and all abilities rang loud and clear!

In the spirit of the season, we are grateful and give thanks….
