Our very own Elizabeth of Schermerhorn 10 was not in school Monday. She was performing with her very special dance troupe called "Dancing Dreams" on the premiere show of NBC's "Meredith".

Dancing Dreams is an organization that helps children with physical challenges achieve their dreams. The organization was started by Joann Ferrara in 2006 in Bayside, Queens. Each child is given a helper who works with them to dance across the stage. Meredith surprises the troupe with their biggest dream on her premiere episode! It was announce on the show that the troupes dream of performing at Lincoln Center will happen.
