4th annual ‘Dancing With the Teachers’ to be held at Fieldstone Middle School in Thiells

The 4th annual 'Dancing with the Teachers' competition will help raise money to fight cancer.

THEILLS - Rehearsals began last night for the fourth annual "Dancing With the Teachers" competition at the Fieldstone Middle School in Thiells.

Ten faculty members will pair with professional dancers from New York DanceSport in New City.

The upcoming two-night event has teachers excited to hit the dance floor for a good cause. The event benefits the group "Stand Up For Cancer."

"A teacher and a group of kids decided they wanted to start raising funds. They came up with this idea based on “Dancing with the Stars” and brought it to the school. Little did they know it would blow up to what it is four years later," says Assistant Principal Ed Garcia.

"Dancing With the Teachers" will be held in the school's auditorium tomorrow and Saturday at 7 p.m.
