Congrats to TEN hardworking students who have earned the opportunity to begin working in pre-pointe and pointe shoes! They were very carefully evaluated by Mrs. Therese, Mrs. Rachael, and Mrs. Shellie over the last three weeks and were fitted in shoes at Dance-N-Things this week. Next class, a sewing lesson! And, lots more hard work ahead! ✨ . Pointe shoes are a big deal and must be earned. These dancers have been taking multiple classes a week for years to meet this goal. Now, they must work even harder.
It’s been raining donors over here since November, and we are so grateful that you exceeded our goal! Thank you to each and every person who has given to our annual fund drive that helps us provide dance classes to students across Birmingham. Donations are welcome any time! #givetowhatmovesyou
