Happy August! We hope everyone is enjoying a relaxing, healthy, and fun summer. There is still plenty of time to get to the pool, build sandcastles, and enjoy the warm weather – and help out a local karma partner! This month we are supporting Charlotte Ballet (formerly known as North Carolina Dance Theater) and their Reach scholarship program. Reach is Charlotte Ballet’s nationally recognized outreach dance scholarship program for children ages 7-10. Reach makes quality dance training accessible to minority, male and female students with evidenced financial need and little, if any, previous dance experience, who demonstrate a natural talent for movement and the potential to be trained in dance.
Since 1990, Charlotte Ballet is a locally-based, world class repertory dance ensemble. It performs classic, contemporary and cutting-edge dance with virtuosity, energy, and artistic excellence for local, statewide and national audiences. But what if you are that girl or boy that would love to dance, but financially your family can’t support your dream? That’s where the Reach program takes over.
That’s a fantastic opportunity for a lot of hopeful, talented kids. For more information, here is the Charlotte Ballet website – http://charlotteballet.org. Maybe you are inspired to support Charlotte Ballet – want to know how you can help?
