Dance for Kids
Organized by: Fred Astaire La Grange
With the lack of arts in many schools as well as the access to others due to lack of funds we are starting a self sufficient organization once running to help kids in our community have the access to learn how to dance. Our goal is $1000 which will help us start on the ground level to build the necessary requirements of our program. With each group of schools we are planning on creating a food shack that will sell food to the local community and allow at least 10% of revenue to support the local program. Once the program is running we plan on using that to fund any artistic endeavor in a school. We are currently in the planning phases and will have to programs running for free and are hoping to open our first shack within a few months to help support the kids in the program. The money will allow them to have professional instructors, clothes, shoes, travel, compete, etc. We believe that the falling grades in school system can be linked to the declining amount of art in the school system. This is a way to make sure that every school will have the opportunity to have art in their school system as well as anyone home schooled.
