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.
