Kyle Hanagami's Letters of Love

February 15, 2013

There’s nothing we love more than a dancer who goes beyond the classroom to give back. And Kyle Hanagami’s doing just that. You probably know him as the smooth-moving, super-cute hip-hop choreographer. (Remember this video?!) Well, now we’re seeing a different side of him. After a recent injury sidelined him, he started thinking beyond dance and decided he wanted to make a difference in the world by raising money for cancer research.

Kyle started out by donating all of the proceeds from one of his classes to the cause—and the studio matched the amount. Inspired, he decided to take it one step further and give everyone else a chance to get involved. Enter, letters of love. Here’s how you can help:

1. Write a love letter. Talk about any kind of love and decorate it however you’d like.

2. Send it:

P.O. Box 6339

North Hollywood, CA 91603


3. For every 10 letters Kyle receives, he’ll donate another dollar of his own money to cancer research.

So easy, so awesome. Now, grab some paper and get writing! Together, we can be dancers who make a difference.
