DAC Gives Back Using Creativity

by Karyn Edison

Each year, Dancing Arts Center faculty and students join together to support local communities through food, clothing, and toy drives. Beginning October 25, the annual costume week will double as a fundraiser for the American Red Cross.

Students (and sometimes parents) wear homemade costumes and make donations of a $1 or more at each class they attend wearing a costume.  Those dropping off students or just coming in for a visit are also encouraged to donate. Collection cans will be placed in the lobby and in each studio from Tuesday, October 25 to Monday, October 31.

“This fun tradition was started in response to Hurricane Katrina years ago and continues today,” says DAC Director Karyn Edison.  “The fun of designing and dressing up is multiplied when everyone contributes to a cause that supports those adversely affected by disasters.  The community is invited to stop in to spook us and drop a dollar in the collection can.”

About the Dancing Arts Center:
The Dancing Arts Center, located in Holliston, Massachusetts, provides instruction in
classical ballet, modern dance, improvisation, character, jazz, Pointe, and choreography, and offers a variety of other performance-related classes through the year.  DAC’s teaching foundation is based on the philosophy that good dance training awakens the senses and stimulates emotional, physical, and intellectual growth. It believes in nurturing each student’s desires, and enhancing their love of dance, through creative expression, exploration, and discovery.

Its small class size fosters careful, and progressive development of each student’s artistry.
