This Is Why Laurie Cumbo Won Stars of NY Dance Event

In case you haven't heard, Brooklyn Councilmember Laurie Cumbo is the 5th Anniversary Dance Champion for The Stars of New York Dance -- and when you see this video you'll know why.

She and her dance partner Jamel Gaines of Creative Outlet Dance Theatre of Brooklyn sizzled to the sounds of JLo.

Because of her participation, Creative Outlet won $5,000 to provide five or more children from low-income communities in New York City with a free or subsidized year of high-quality dance education and training.

The event, held at LIU in Brooklyn, honored the Rev. Al Sharpton this year.

Annually, Brooklyn leaders, partnered with professional dancers, dance to raise dance scholarship funds for underserved children in Brooklyn.  

Errol Louis (NY1) hosted the affair. Brooklyn DA Ken Thompson was a special presenter.

McBrooklyn linked to videos of previous participants, including the Honorable Betty Staton, PA Letitia James and Scott Stringer here.
