St. Mary’s Hospital for Children in Bayside welcomed professional dancer Val Chmerkovskiy, shown with award, to entertain and dance with the patients.
Chmerkowskiy, who performs on Dancing with the Stars, was joined by Z100 personalities Danielle Monaro and Garrett Vogel. All three were selected to judge the children’s performances, and gave perfect scores to the little performers as they completed solos and group dances.
The professional dancer took a tour of the facility and said visiting was a special opportunity for him, adding: “Nothing gives you more purpose than inspiring and helping kids. I will be back visiting very soon.”
