Dancing for a Cause

Flashback Productions presents: Once Upon a FlashbackYour favorite Disney classics with a modern twist

Here at The First String Healthcare we strive to sometimes step outside the typical day to day role’s and give back to the community in our own special ways. Our very own Dana Bonifacio, who is very involved with Disney, participates in an annual showcase held by Disneyland Resort that supports the Accelerate Change Together organization in Anaheim, California. This organization was made to help “build a better future for the youth of Anaheim”  and is also supported by Angels Baseball and Anaheim Ducks.  It is a musical theater production with singing, dancing and acting; comprised of Disneyland cast members throughout the resort.  It is performed at Disney California Adventure on the Hyperion Theater stage.  The resort is split up into 4 teams depending on their area work location.  Rehearsals are 4 days a week, Monday – Thursday nights, 4 hours each day for 6 weeks straight.  All participants of the production earn volunteer hours.  Dana is part of the core dance team and was chosen by the leadership team as the “dance team captain”.  Every year Disney donates all proceeds from the shows revenue to a charity and this year the team was able to donate $15,000.  This is Dana’s 3rd season participating in this production.

Everyone gathers together for the same cause, which allows people from all areas of the Disney organization to interact and work together that wouldn’t normally connect outside of this production. Most participants have never danced before so it’s great for them to come out of their shell and learn something new!!

Not all of us were able to attend, but she had an amazing support team thanks to Emily, Samantha, Lindsay, Kylie, Steph, Matt and Elissa.

We are so proud to have Dana on our team!
