Company News



This is the 3rd year since the company’s inception and in these 3 years, they have grown not only in talent, but as 6 responsible and dedicated little beings.  I am beyond proud of them and all they have achieved thus far.

For the past couple of years, we have grown in the number of competitions and local congresses they have performed.  So this in turn means more costs, expenses, tuition hikes and fees.  We are asking for your help in helping us cover some of the expenses so that the kids can attend all their events and competitions and continue to grow in dance.  They want to experience everything the dance world has to offer and maybe one day make it to the big screen and major venues!

All the funds will be go towards costumes, hotel and congresses passes, competitions fees, and travel expenses.  We hope to raise the money by Spring 2016 as this is when competition season begins.

The kids and I would be beyond grateful for all donations.  All your help gets us closer to becoming the best dancers they can.  Please help us get to our goal :)Please click below to donate:
