Dancers from the Westport Dance Center company recently traveled to Warner Theatre in Torrington to perform in the Connecticut Dancers for Good's benefit.

The Westport Dance Center and five other Connnecticut dance schools performed with Pilobolus, the avant garde modern dance company, and Sarah Pfister and Frank Mastrone of Phantom of the Opera. The 23 Westport Dance Center dancers performed their contemporary ballet piece "Bohemian Rapsody," choreographed by Geri Murphy, and "Notice Me," choreographed by Diana Lisi.

The event raised thousands of dollars, which will be distributed to seven programs of the Actors Fund. Since 1988, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS has raised more that $175 million dollars for essential services for people with AIDS and other critical illnesses who cannot afford medical care.
