Our 2016 Summer Dance Program has almost reached an end, but our work continues. In just a few weeks, we'll embark on our 2016 Fall Semester Dance Program, where we'll welcome new students in addition to DSPAC veterans. However, we need your support to offer scholarships to these amazing dancers. In the past, you've heard what we had to say about the work we're doing at the Dwana Smallwood Performing Arts Center. Now it's time that you hear what your contributions have personally meant to our students here. In the attached link, you'll meet Elyse, Caila, and Amari- all dancers who've experienced the gift that your donations provided. Watch, subscribe, but most importantly, spread the word. Help us continue to enrich their lives and those of other student by offering 2016 Fall Dance Scholarships!

It's been a year since we opened our doors and because of your generous donations, we continue to serve our students. June concluded our Spring Semester, where scholarship recipients were able to grace the stage, displaying their talents in a variety of techniques, including Modern, Ballet, African and Hip-Hop. We also recently celebrated the inaugural M.A.M.A. Festival: More Arts More Alive! where Bedford-Stuyvesant members congregrated to celebrate the magic that happens when the arts and the community collide. Stay tuned for visual footage of our scholarship recipients leaving their marks on the stage and the community!
