FALL T-SHIRT FUNDRAISER
SEPTEMBER 20TH - OCTOBER 9TH
FUNDS AND COMPLETED FORM IS DUE OCTOBER 11TH
WHAT IS THE FUNDRAISER?
We are super excited to announce that we are kicking off our first fundraiser of the season,
The T-Shirt Fundraiser!
As many of you know, there are two ways to be a part of DMA and that is through our Academy program or our Elite program by being a part of the varying Companies.
Last season during the NYCDA National Convention, the Companies earned our studio the award of 2021 National Outstanding Studio and we are super proud to share that distinction with every dancer we serve!
Whether an Academy or Company dancer, we work very hard to pour our love and passion for dance into each child we serve not only helping them to be an Outstanding Dancer but more importantly helping them to be the best person they can be with Exemplary Character & Leadership.
To raise money to help with the relocation of the studio. Any remaining funds will be used to secure the recital venue, Symphony Hall.
Monday, September 20, 2021 - Saturday, October 9, 2021
Each dancer will seek a minimum of 20 sponsors and ask them to donate $25.00 towards their fundraising goal. Each sponsor will be listed on the back of the dancer’s shirt.
