Dawgs Elite New York Trip

Hello!  My name is Melissa Colon and I teach some amazing kids here in Atlanta, GA.  This special group of kids are alumni of my middle school dance team.  Now in high school, they continue to work with me a couple nights a week and dance, participate in mentoring my middle school team and basically help me with everything!  They are role models and wonderful students and people!!
I decided that instead of just taking them to competitions, I wanted to give them real life experiences.  We've been attending workshops when professional choreographers come to Atlanta and we love to perform and help out at community events.  However, I want to get these kids out there so they can really see the world.  Almost all of them have never been on a plane or out of the state of Georgia.  But, we've been saving money and we are going to NEW YORK CITY on November 18-20th, 2017!!! 
The kids have been working hard and raising money for their plane tickets and hotel.  However, I want them to have some experiences while they are there!  I want them to take a class at Broadway Dance Center, Alvin Ailey, and also have an opportunity to ride to the top of the Freedom Tower and see the 9/11 memorial as well.  All of this of course costs money, and we still have to think about transportation and food.  
If you can find it in your heart to help donate to the cause, we would forever be grateful!  I want to give these kids the world and provide as many new and positive experiences on this trip as I can!
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!!
