St. Coletta Day School to show how tap dance is helping students with special needs at Colettascope fundraiser

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Last spring St. Coletta Day School, a school for children with special needs, and DANCEWORKS Milwaukee provided the St. Coletta students with a semester of tap dancing.

They affectionately called it “The Tap Experience."

Members of the public are invited to see how it all works at ColettaScope,  the yearly fundraiser for St. Coletta Day School.

The event is Saturday November 11 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at Mount Mary University.

Some of the students and staff will be recreating the “Tap Experience.” 

CBS 58's Drew Burgoyne will host the event and will also dance!

But there will also be opportunities to purchase student artwork.

Starting in 1956 St. Coletta Day School has the mission of providing an academic as well as social curriculum to allow students with special needs to reach their full potential.

Moral values are part of the curriculum with special emphasis on respecting and promoting each student's uniqueness and instilling in them a responsibility to serve others.

Colettascope is their annual fundraiser and this year they mark 20 years of the event which began as an auction of student artwork.

Teaching assistant Julie Borouchoff  and student Anijah Ray-Young were special guests on the CBS 58 News at 4.

Their interview is attached to this story.

Colettascope is this Saturday at Mount Mary University.
