Since 2009, the 610 Stompers, along with their sister group the 610 Splits, have captured the hearts of fans through dancing. Consisting of 100 members, the group dances through the streets of the New Orleans to raise money for charitable causes. So far, they've raised over $520,000 and supported numerous causes such as the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Good Shepherd School, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Habitat for Humanity, and NAMI New Orleans. In addition, they've performed at debutante balls, holiday parties, and much more.
