Being a small arts organization, moving is difficult as we do not have the budget or funds to afford construction (new studio, studio flooring, dressing rooms, bathrooms, offices, parent viewing area, transporting & installing our glass observation wall, etc.). Moving to stay in business is something we absolutely had to do, closing our doors was just not an option. Not only do we have a unique program as we try to preserve classical dance techniques but we also try to do so in a loving and welcoming environment from an educational perspective. We also feel that it is our mission to carry on the legacy that our Founding Director and beloved Miss Susan left behind. When Miss Susan passed the number of messages we received from former students and alum saying how much she changed their lives was overwhelming. This is what the arts is truly about especially for young people; it fosters creativity (a fundamental part of intellectual development), it provides an emotional outlet to children who may not have access to that environment at school or home, and builds friendships that last a lifetime.
We thank everyone who has continued to support us over the years especially while Miss Susan was sick. Your donation means a lot to us as it will help us stay in business as well as help cover construction & rent costs.
