I am a former professional modern dancer turned NYC teaching fellow who has successfully started an after-school dance program in February at P.S. 18 in Williamsburg, Brooklyn; and this has been a dream come true for me. As you know the after-school art programs are unfortunately few and far between; and I am so happy to bring the joy of dance to young students who are starving for outlets in life beyond TV and video games... I am currently teaching young dancers, they are boys and girls in grades 1-4. So far I have had verbal support from my principal but no real resources. I have supplied the music and water bottles, but am writing to ask for your help in supplying costumes for our show coming this June... I am hoping to purchase 30 cool sweatpants, t-shirts,and a few pairs of sneakers for students currently without. I should mention that in our warm-up I am teaching the fundamentals of ballet, and combining Simonson jazz technique, yoga, and original choreography. As far as the show, we are performing a Hip-hop routine, and a Jazz dance that gets better and better every week. I would encourage donors to come and see the show!!!
