The recital will benefit Mackenzie West, a 3-year-old with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS). HLHS is a rare congenital heart defect in which the heart's left ventricle is severely underdeveloped.

The academy consists mostly of dancers from West Deptford, and the cast consists of dancers who range in age from 2-21.

The performance begins at 1 p.m. Tickets cost $20.
