Dancing Arts Center Supports US Troops

by Karyn Edison

In a show of support for U.S troops, Dancing Arts Academy students held one more community event before the end of their school year.


 DAA students asked dancers, parents and the Holliston community to donate items that would help those actively serving in the military. As a result, DAA collected hand sanitizer, gum, puzzle books, Girl Scout cookies, and packets of powdered iced tea and lemonade. Students also wrote letters expressing their appreciation and gratitude for what these troops do while living far from their loved ones and the conveniences of home.

“Calling students into action to support our community is an important part of the Dancing Arts Center curriculum,” says DAA Director Karyn Edison. “Challenging them to organize different events through the year instills a sense of responsibility to support and help our neighbors, as well as take the time to appreciate what special groups, like our U.S. troops, do for us every day.”

 The DAA will drop off the goods at a local collection site, where they will then be given to troops abroad.

 About the Dancing Arts Center:

The Dancing Arts Center, located in Holliston, Massachusetts, provides instruction in  classical ballet, modern dance, improvisation, character, hip hop, pointe, pas de deux, 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.
