About Dance for The Cure


Dance for the Cure is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization committed to the prevention and cure of breast cancer through the celebration of dance.


We are a 100% volunteer organization. All monies raised are distributed directly to families in Somerset, Middlesex and Hunterdon counties who have found themselves in difficult and unforeseen circumstances.


Dance for the Cure is successful in raising gifting funds, due to the tireless and dedicated efforts of our 100% volunteer organization. As a result, Dance for the Cure has been able to deliver cash gifts totaling $400,000 to date to individuals throughout Somerset, Middlesex and Hunterdon counties while they go through their breast cancer journey.


The expressions of gratitude from our gift recipients, and the many ways in which a “no red tape” gift can make a small but significant positive impact in their lives is very rewarding for the entire Dance for the Cure family of volunteers.


How We Got Started

When Kathleen Cirioli was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1998, she relied on her passion for dance to motivate her to weather the many difficult months of treatment. She fought her way back to continue running her dance studio and teaching tap dancing. In 1999, Dance for The Cure began its program of entertaining and educating audiences about breast cancer, and in so doing, has helped numerous families impacted by cancer.


Dance for The Cure is available for corporate and community events.
