Dancers Making A Difference was formed to allow studios and their performers the opportunity to come together and share their passion and talent in a non-competitive environment while working for the good of a local non-profit whose mission they support. In the last 4 years we have raised almost $15000. Proceeds raised have gone toward helping the following organizations. End 68 Hours of Hunger, Camp Kita, Friends In Action, and youth in the Maine Foster Care system. Initiatives for Maine Foster Care included Josh’s College Care Packages, Rose Mary’s Sacks of LOVE, and H.O.M.E. (Having Opportunities Means Everything).
Dancers Making A Difference is now an official 501c, and this year we are proud to announce that the recipient of our 2017 benefit performance will be the Maine Arts Council Dance Grant Fund. The money we raise will be used to fund grants to offer dance opportunities in areas of Maine that have none. John Morris received a grant to provide dance instruction in St. Agatha, Maine in December 2016. More information can be found on the Maine Arts Ed blog at http://meartsed.wordpress.com/.
“Dancing To Make A Difference 2017” Benefit will be held Saturday, March 4, at 7:00pm at Noble High School in Berwick, ME, and all proceeds from this performance will go directly to this organization. Your participation will not only help to create a memorable show, but it will also make a real difference in the lives of many children who have never been exposed to dance.
