There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes for our dance group you may not know about. To help maintain our dance group as well as continue promoting Scottish values and traditions, this Tartan Day, April 9th, we will be holding a tea party fundraiser at the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center!
All proceeds will go towards:
■ providing dance lessons at low cost,
■ providing costumes to dancers who don’t own their own yet,
■ purchasing new group costumes,
■ mitigating costume cleaning and storage costs,
■ purchasing learning tools for the studio such as practice swords and mirrors,
■ purchasing marketing material so that we can ensure the future of the group,
■ reducing dancer cost for future trips the group may take!
So, come visit us for tea, cookies, and sandwiches, plus traditional Scottish entertainment, including live music and dance! Also, anyone who wears tartan to the event will automatically be entered in a special raffle! To purchase tickets in advance, either get in contact with one of our dancers directly, click the ‘Register Now’ button on the countdown widget, or click here.
We look forward to seeing you there!
