Dance Project’s Letter to Santa
December 15, 2014 § Leave a comment
We’ve had a great year at Dance Project and we definitely think we deserve to be on your nice list this year! We raised over $10,000 in July with the help of donors and were able to receive a matching $10,000 from another generous donor to help put us back on solid footing!
We selected 5 amazing artists for NCDF’s 24th annual touring season.
Our fall semester is almost done–we had 7 amazing master classes and 2 performance opportunities for our youth and adult companies.
The Van Dyke Dance Group performed in Greensboro and then toured Vermont to great reviews.
Don’t you think we deserve to be on the nice list? We do! Here’s a few things we’ve been dying for this Holiday season:
-Great new submissions for our 25th anniversary season of NCDF
-A working printer for Program Director Anne Morris; even though it is fun to go visit the School office every once in a while
-Exciting master class teachers for the new Spring series
–Lots of new dancers in class and a copy of Misty Copeland’s book, Life in Motion: an Unlikely Ballerina for Ms. M (Assistant School Director Milanda McGinnis)
-Increased arts funding in the local, state, and national legislature
–Adults to register for our newest class, Ballet For the Absolute Beginner, taught by Anne Morris
-New work by the Van Dyke Dance Group
-School Director Lauren Joyner wants t-shirts for our performance companies, new registration software, and a new sound system for studio 305
–More generous supporters
-New costumes in the costume closet and a costume elf to help us keep them organized
-Artistic Director Jan Van Dyke wants more opportunities for staff expansion and better compensation for all their hard work!
-Another successful year cultivating the field of modern dance in North Carolina!
Oh, and a pony, please.
