Readers say thanks
The Glenwood Dance Academy would like to thank you for the article you published in Options recently concerning our students who have been selected to attend summer dance classes at some of the nations premier ballet schools.
I am obviously so very proud of Addie Tapp who will be attending Pacific Northwest Ballet; Nicole Zinn who will be attending American Ballet Theatre; and Hannah Zon who will be attending Kirov Ballet Academy. Brianne Jones was also selected by Kirov Ballet, but will be unable to attend. To be selected by these ballet schools is a testament to these dancers very hard work. To be selected for this honor is equivalent to the Denver Broncos selecting ones son to attend training camp.
The cost of attending these summer programs will prove to be quite an additional expense for their families, especially during these financially trying times. They will most probably cost between $3500 and $4000 plus transportation.
Therefore, on behalf of these wonderfully talented young ladies, the Glenwood Dance Academy has established a fund to help their families with this expense.
We would hope that your readers will find it in their hearts to help us in this very special cause.
If you or your readers would like to donate to this fund, you may send a check to the Glenwood Dance Academy at 100 Midland Avenue, Suite 230 in Glenwood Springs, CO 81601. Specify that it is for the Adopt a Dancer fund. If you wish to donate via credit card, please call 945-2717 with your credit card info or stop by the Academy with your card. Please try to make your donation before May 30.
