Play Brigade founder Dawn Oates showcased an energized disco routine and scored a victory for inclusion when she won the Brookline Rotary’s third annual Dancing With The Brookline Stars event. Selected as one of 8 community leaders invited to participate at the charity fundraising dance competition, Oates used the opportunity to demonstrate The Play Brigade’s mission by dancing with a partner who uses a wheelchair. Despite having no prior dance experience, Dawn and her partner, Bob Burres, stunned the sold out audience and judges with their synchronized moves and spins. Their eye opening performance received a standing ovation and top scores from the judges.
