Bring the Music!

Help me give my students a speaker with full sound coverage much better than the handheld boombox we currently have.

My Students

My students are talented and hardworking dancers. We practice twice a week, but these ladies (and gentleman) put in countless hours of practice on their own time. These students are not only academically elite, but they are also very talented.

We have won the local American All-Star Dance Competition two years in a row!

Two of our seniors are now on the Tulane Shockwave Dance Team and several others dance in clubs and organizations at their colleges. This time is talented and capable of so much!

My Project

Our Dance Team currently has a boom box, but the music doesn't get loud enough to fill the whole gym. We could use some music that not only all of the girls could hear, but so could the people watching us dance. Imagine the difference that could make for a performance. Not only will our practice be better, but so will our ability to showcase our skills.

We will bring the moves, you bring the music!

Our talented group has a lot of groove. We improve each and every year. Music is so key to what we do. We could use your help!
