GREENWICH, Conn. — Abilis, which helps people with developmental disabilities, hosted its second annual Sweetheart Ball on Saturday at Arthur Murray Grande Ballroom in Greenwich.

"The idea last year was to have some of our long-term relationships come down and have dance lessons for Valentine's Day," Keelin Daly, marketing director at Abilis, told Daily Voice. "Then the owner of the studio (Chris Georgopulo) ramped it up to be a Sweetheart Ball. It happened really quickly, so we didn't have a lot of couples come.

 Smiles were on every face as the sweethearts learned a few dance steps, then put them to work with the music and their partners as they celebrated Valentine's Day in style.
