Why the Y?
Can you tell which children on the left are on scholarship? No? Good, neither can we - and that's the point! Each year our YMCA provides over $800,000 in scholarship assistance to our programs and membership... that's in addition to the countless programs and services offered at low or no cost at our two traditional Y facilites, two community outreach centers, early learning center, 24 school age programming locations and community programming locations.
Our YMCA Dance Academy is quickly becoming recognized as one of the top dance schools in St. Petersburg - but we are not exclusive. All children in our community deserve the opportunity to develop self-esteem, a positive self-image and participate in healthy peer building activities.... really - a chance to shine... regardless of their present financial circumstances.
What is the YMCA Dance-A-Thon?
A one hour dance extravaganza designed to raise donations in support of our annual campaign - ensuring scholarships are available for the Dance Academy.
How Can I Participate?
Suggested donation for the one hour event is $10.00, payable at the beginning of the event. Participants are encouraged to raise $100 in donations towards the Annual Campaign. Participants will be dancing for one full hour learning popular dances from various decades.
When Is It?
February 25th, 2014, 6-7:00pm in the Multi-Purpose Room of the Jim and Heather Gills YMCA.
What’s In It for Me?
Besides the great feeling of contributing to a child in need, you will have the opportunity to learn dances from a variety of eras, including the 20's, 40's and 50's. We will have a costume contest as well so wear a costume of your favorite era to join in the fun! Prizes will be awarded to those dancers who raise the most donations, and all dancer’s participating, will receive a Y Dance T-shirt.
