THE BRONX - Aspiring Bronx dancers are getting help from an award-winning director and choreographer.

Otis Sallid is volunteering his time to teach the aspiring dancers in a three-day workshop at the Mind-Builders Creative Arts Center.

Sallid has choreographed such events as the Super Bowl and the Academy Awards.

Some students News 12 spoke with say despite being life-long dancers, they can still learn a lot from Sallid's top-of-the-line instruction.

Sallid says he hopes to make a difference and to instill a quality in the dancers, who may not otherwise have had a chance to make it in the profession.

The non-profit center is hoping to expand the program with Sallid to include more dancers next summer.
