CLIFFSIDE PARK, N.J. -- One lucky local dancer -- from the Source Dance Lab, founded by Cliffside Park native Ashley Frato -- got the chance to dance with the iconic Justin Bieber on May 5.

Twelve-year-old Dylan Nally got to dance at Bieber's performance at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, as part of his "Purpose World Tour."

Nally, a Nutley native, is a competitive dancer with the Source. She entered Bieber's "Purpose Tour Children" contest via YouTube, along with thousands of dancers across the nation.

"It was an experience I will never forget," Dylan said after her performance.

The dance studio, located in Ridgefield, takes part in many community outreach performances in the tri-state area. They have participated with Cliffside Park School No. 3's car show fundraiser, National Night Out Against Crime, Health & Wellness Week at Schools No. 3 and 4, Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign and more.

Its dancers have also been seen on "America's Got Talent," Disney's "Shake It Up" and more.

"We feel it is important to not only teach kids how to dance, but to educate them on the importance of giving back to the community," said Frato. "It's not always about the trophy, even though winning does feel great."

Dancers with the Source will head to Orlando in July to perform in Walt Disney World's "Magic Kingdom" and Epcot's Dance the World Parade, to showcase their regional winning routines of the 2015-2016 season.
