Northland teens with a talent for dance are whirling their way to a cure for cancer.

The dancers were swinging in a showcase for a good cause on Sunday. The Eighth Annual Dancing Against Cancer Dance Showcase took place at Black Bear Casino. All the money raised went to St. Jude's for research.

It means a lot to the dancers, because cancer impacts just about everyone.

"We all wore pink for one of our dance moms at our studio because she has cancer," said Abbie Huberty, a dancer with Dream Dance Academy.

Philip Hommes from Duluth Dance Center said it also hits close to home for him.

"I think it's very important because I have family members with cancer, and I think it's very important that we raise money," he said.

Six local dance studios help put on on the event, and they've raised over $15,000 for St. Jude's over the last seven years.
