My Students

Our school is a school where the arts are very relevant. I work with students from Kindergarten to 5th grade. As much support as we have for the arts, from administrators, teachers and parents; getting funding for costumes and materials is always difficult. We try to put on shows throughout the year, including a 1st grade holiday show, kindergarten songfest and the annual 2nd grade dance show. I have the pleasure to work with some amazing kids who work so hard and I would love to be able to provide them with everything they need to make their performance in the 2nd grade dance show spectacular.

My Project

Each year our second grade puts on a dance showcase. We are excited to include one of our self contained special education classes in the show this year. They are the sweetest group of kids who all having different needs.

The students have emotional issues, autism, ADHD and other learning disabilities but have been working so hard and are so excited for the show.

It is a small class of mostly boys who have been learning a hip hop dance. I would love for their costumes to be complete by being able to give each student a pair of dance shoes for the show.
