#DanceFundChallenge - 23 Scholarships for 23 Hartford Youth
We are raising $12,000 to provide 23 Hartford students for the chance to dance this summer. These kids have been inside since March. Their parents will not have the financial resources to provide them with the opportunity for summer dance camp. 80% of these kids do not have access to on-line learning. Many of their parents and guardians have lost jobs or are on the front line. Most of these families do not have access to safe living quarters with stringent mask wearing, hand sanitizer and social distancing measures. You have the opportunity to change that. Our Summer Sessions will be held out of doors, in the fresh air, under a tent, following the safety guidelines of the State and Local health officials. These students will be training with the best teachers in the field of dance - a graduate from Julliard, a world renowned Kathak dancer, a ballet instructor whose students have won international competitions. Please donate generously and become part of the on-going story of equity and inclusion in dance in Hartford.
Donations are matched dollar for dollar by SustainableCT.
