After having undergone heart surgery at the Montreal Heart Institute, Christine “Coco” Trinh was driven to give back to the supportive community and thus formed a group of young ambitious individuals to help organize a fundraiser event called “Dance Your Heart Out”. The event is designed to increase awareness for youth affected by heart disease, and expose underground talented individuals who will be performing ultimately for the cause;.
Hosted by Malik Shaheed and B-boy Afternoon, the event will showcase 16 dance crews who will compete for prizes in the categories of break dancing and popping. The event will also feature artists 4DZ and Leila. With more than 500 guests attending this event, it will be held Thursday, June 16, 2011, starting at 7PM. It will be hosted at the Theatre Rialto at 5723 Avenue du Parc, Montreal. Tickets are on sale at SubV, Shauna Roberts Dance Studio, the Adrenaline Tattoo shop and the Montreal Heart Institute. All profits will go directly to the Montreal Heart Institute.
