Dancing for the King is a non-profit ministry dedicated to raising funds and awareness for charities and institutions that promote positive change in society through committed volunteers and events. 

This year, Dancing for the King is holding a fundraiser for three South Florida institutions scheduled for Saturday, November 9, at the IBB Miami Auditorium located at 17701 N.W. 57 Avenue. The event will also feature "La Voz Niños" (The Voice Kids) participant, Nicole Herrera to present her campaign against bullying and her new single "Stop."  

The event will include dance performances, songs, and a positive message for families and children of all ages to enjoy.  Entry cost is $15 per adult and $7 per child under the age of 10, which goes toward funding three charities hand-picked by Dancing for the King: His House, Deliver the Dream, and the Hope for Autism Soccer and Sports Conditioning Team. 

His House is a children's non-profit, faith-based social services agency that serves newborns and children up to 18 years-old who have been abused, neglected or drug-exposed. Children are cared for in a residential setting while the organization seeks permanent placement through the form of adoption or foster care.

Deliver the Dream is a non-profit organization that strives to aid families and children ravaged by illness through family retreats that include structured indoor and outdoor activities, discussion groups, workshops, interactive games and the ability to connect with other families experiencing similar circumstances. The retreat program offers therapeutic benefits through relaxation and recreational opportunities. For more information visit

The Hope for Autism Soccer and Sports Conditioning Team frequently practices at the Norman and Jean Reach Park in Palm Springs North. The program encourages physical fitness, social skills and provides a team environment for autistic children. The team recently attended the Florida Soccer Expo at Sun Life Stadium for an unforgettable experience. More information on the team can be found at:
