"Dancing Star" New York State Senator Kevin Parker and his dance partner Zakiya M. Harris won The 2012 Stars of New York Dance competition and secured $5,000 for Asase Yaa African American Dance Theater to provide free and subsidized dance education to children from low-income communities in Brooklyn.

"My victory is really owed to my dance partner Zakiya Harris, who was able to quickly determine what I could do well.  I am truly grateful for the opportunity to have fun while helping children in my community to become engaged in the arts.”
