“We gotta teach the children every day, keep a song
Show them the light, teach them right from wrong
Make some sense so they can carry on” –Rakim
Art is disappearing in our schools today and like Rakim said, it is up to us to teach our children. We have just the event to help our cause – Dancing with the Tahoe Stars. Presented by the Tahoe Arts Project (TAP), it’s a fundraiser to support the Arts in our schools. Here’s a little about TAP:
- A private non-profit organization
- Brings art, music, and dance programs to Lake Tahoe schoolchildren for over 30 years
- Reaches 4,000+ students in 10 schools across El Dorado, Douglas, and Alpine counties
- Responsible for bringing the Missoula Children’s Theater to South Lake Tahoe twice a year
Dancing with the Stars – Tahoe style?
Much like the popular TV show, Dancing with the Tahoe Stars pairs a Local “celebrity” with a professional dancer. For this year’s installment, I got recruited as a Local (not sure about my celebrity status) and WOW! – has it been an adventure! I’ve paired up with dance extraordinaire Rhonda Keen. She played Sally Bowles in Cabaret last year and has been a theater student at LTCC for many years. Bollywood is our dance style for the fundraiser. An unfamiliar discipline to both of us, while it’s a little challenging for her, imagine how crazy this is for me!
“What can I do?”
Please help our community and most importantly, our kids! I’m asking for your support with a donation to the Tahoe Arts Project and “Vote” for your favorite dance pair. Voting is easy.

Generosity deserves a Drink ‘On the House’
This event is very close to my heart and important to all of us at Blue Angel Café & Catering Co. For every donation of $25 to our team, we’ll give each person a free drink when you come and visit us at the café. Donate to a great cause and toast with your drink on us!
