Buddy Walk Funding Provided Free Art Classes This Summer

We have heard from the Gold Coast Down Syndrome Organization that they have used the funding raised by The Dancer’s Alchemy during the 2015 Buddy Walk to provide free art classes for local adults this summer. The class has been so popular that they will continue to offer it during the fall and beyond! The participants have really enjoyed the class.

Thank you to all of the Southern Dance Theatre and Dancer’s Edge Company families and students who participated to make this event and the class for these students such a success.

You may see some familiar faces in the photos below, some of the members of the Special Arts Ensemble enjoyed their time painting this summer.

Love Affair 2016 – Post-Show Announcement

Joan, Penni, Carissa - Love Affair 2016
We’re excited to announce that through the many generous donations, ticket sales, concession sales, and program gratitude messages to Miss Joan, the Dancer’s Alchemy raised $21,000. Expenses of the show, reception, and advertising were $8,000, of which $4,000 was underwritten and the remaining $4,000 was paid for by the money raised. The remaining $17,000 was donated to The Palm Beach Ballet Center trust to aide in the purchase of a hospital bed, wheelchair, and walker for Miss Joan Miller as she lives with Alzheimers.
Many thanks again for those who shared their time, money, and love to make this all possible.

Orlando Aerial Arts to Perform at A Love Affair to Honor Joan Miller

We are so excited that the lovely and talented Jennifer Pierce of Orlando Aerial Arts will be performing at A Love Affair. Jennifer met and worked with Ms. Joan Miller while she was in high school at Dreyfoos School of the Arts and under the direction of Penni Greenly as a student and company member at Southern Dance Theatre.  Penni and Ms. Julie Bravata sent Jennifer to Palm Beach Ballet Center to receive private coaching from Ms. Joan on ballet Variations.

Jennifer also performed with Ms. Joan’s performance company in A Christmas Carol and as a soloist in a Giordano Jazz production for a private event. Ms. Joan simply lit up a room when instructing. Her approach was warm and encouraging, but demanding of your personal best.

No stone was ever left unturned when coaching a variation. From the placement of your carriage to the approach of how to walk out of stage, Ms. Joan brought out the best in every individual who opened up their heart and mind to the art of dance.
