Help keep Blake in ballet!

My dance studio has been around since 1933.  I have owned it since 1986.  I have always been a huge proponent of the idea that EVERYBODY can dance.  Including BOYS.

Blake as the Toy Soldier

I have just recently begun the process to sell my studio having been diagnosed with Parkinson’s last summer.  Currently, there is a little boy who excels at ballet, tap, jazz, acro-gym, everything he tries… however money is an issue.  I have never charged him for lessons, however,  for the 2017-18 dance year, it is out of my hands.  The new owner, understandably, must watch her budget and is not able to forego the tuition.   It is not within my means to pay for his classes myself.  So, I am asking for donations so that this young man can continue his dance lessons.

He loves dance.  It is his escape from often unfriendly reactions at school (he is very much bullied – I have a personal relationship with his principal as I am the one he tells things to mostly and I let her know when an incidence occurs), and his daily stress (his mom has a chronic illness and he has had to cope with situations beyond his age for years).

Blake, always smiling, no matter what!
