What do we do?

The booster club was started in 2015 by 2 dance moms after they realized the dance division was the only strand without one.  With a big dream and only $500, they decided to form one!  We are now in our 3rd year and growing fast!  We are so proud of what we've accomplished in such a short time, but more needs to be done.  During the 2017-2018 school year, we purchased 30 yoga mats, 30 straps, bluetooth speakers for the dance studios, African drums, and a steamer for the dance department.  We also provided food for all dancers when they stayed after school for performances.  We serve approximately 1000 meals during the school year!!  We purchased costumes for the Student Choreography show, the Senior Showcase, and the Spring Concert, including 30 leotards for the freshman piece.  We sponsored a holiday party and an end of the year party.  We purchased merchandise for the dancers who went to the High School Dance Festival and New York City for the Student Choreography Festival.  We also provided food and hosted a Faculty Appreciation Breakfast.  We purchased Senior gifts for the past 3 years.  We ended the year with our 1st Annual Members Only Cocktail Party event honoring 2 Alumni, Dean Burns, Dean Lewis, and our Grand Benefactor.  We had an amazing year and are excited to see what we can accomplish and provide for the dance division this year!!  We hope you will ALL join so that we may reach our goals and MORE!!  All proceeds go directly back to the dancers and the dance department.
