Cristo Rey Jesuit Merengue

Cristo Rey Jesuit High School of Milwaukee introduced their very own version of “Dancing with the Stars” as its annual fundraiser. Much like Cristo Rey Jesuit, this November 18, 2017 event was fast-paced and exciting. Community leaders partnered with dance professionals to choreograph and perform live original routines for those in attendance.

Life Productions was honored to produce a video highlighting how the school, community and area businesses took a chance on bringing this school to Milwaukee a couple years ago.  Additionally, we produced all 8 dancer vignettes that were played before the “stars” took the stage and danced the night away. The main video and 3 dancers vignettes are posted below.

Cristo Rey Jesuit’s Fr. Bill Johnson, S.J., was a last minute “fill in” for one of the scheduled dancers. Bravo!
