How You Can Help
Bates Middle Adopt-A-Dancer Program
Bates Middle School has an Adopt-A-Dancer program to help dancers with the cost of class clothing and costumes. For information and to help, please contact Kristie Genovese (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Chelsea Shea (email@example.com), the dance teachers are Bates.
Dancewear Donation Program
Costumes, dancewear (leotards, jazz pants, dance skirts), dance shoes (ballet shoes, jazz, jazz sneakers, tap shoes) in good condition can be donated to the AACPS dance program to help outfit our students in need. For hygienic reasons, tights are not able to be accepted. Items can be dropped off in a bag with the name and address of the donor at the Board of Education, 2644 Riva Road, Annapolis, MD 21401. A letter will be sent acknowledging the donation. Please contact Judi Fey, Dance Consultant, with questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
Jean Boyd Memorial Fund
This fund sponsors assemblies, master classes, and choreographers for our schools. Jean Boyd was the Assistant Coordinator for Physical Education and Athletics and also a trained dancer. She began the AACPS dance program 35 years ago. Jean passed away in 2010. Please contact Judi Fey, Dance Consultant to be a sponsor. email@example.com, 410-222-5484
Volunteers are a big asset to the dance programs at all of our schools. They make costumes, help with dance events (tickets, concessions, flowers and more), help with fund-raisers, transport dancers, and a myriad of other "jobs" that make the program work. It's fun. Contact the Dance Director at the school.
