Money Well Spent!
June 30, 2016
As part of Nathan's bar mitzvah project, he hosted his first street battle jam, called Battle Redemption on May 14th. He worked hard to get the three best judges, an MC, and a DJ (who actually created beats live during the event!) The event was a huge success and raised money to promote a scholarship for a youth dancer in his own community.
The idea of the event and scholarship was about giving second chances and opportunities to others. Now, we are continuing to raise money to be able to provide even more funds for dance instruction, workshops, conventions, battles, events, and other dance-related activities (e.g., costumes, fees) for those who can not do so due to financial concerns. Nathan is a passionate dancer, and he believes that anyone who has something to say through dance should be able to say it!
No amount is too small. It it typically $10 for admission to a local battle, $15-30 for a master class or workshop, $50-90 for a month of classes, and $150-300 for an out-of-state workshop, battle, or convention.
