This Cause Has Ended
With these funds I will...Purchase six pairs of Jazz dance shoes, 3 Flapper dresses,3 Boas, 6 men's vests and 12 legwarmers. My school started a dance team last year. These students not only have to keep a 2.0 average and pass all their core classes but they also work very hard to raise money for their uniforms. Last year my students worked hard doing car washes and were able to buy their dance jackets a total of over $1000. That of course cleared out our account. This year my students were given a dance showcase where they will put on a 90 min show. My students need dance shoes and costumes for the over 15 dances they will be doing. They have worked hard to learn Jazz,hip-hop,ballet and Broadway. I want them to feel good when they dance. One of the dances they are doing is "all that Jazz" from Chicago for this dance I want to get my students Black flapper dresses with black and white boa's. The boys will be needing black and white vests. The 12 leg warmers I want to get are for "Footloose". Your donations will bring not only smiles to my students this year but to the faces of everyone coming to see the show.
If we do not meet our goal...
If we don't reach our entire goal we will...purchase 3 pairs of Jazz shoes and 2 Flapper dresses.

Katie Devivo

teacher, Lake Worth Community High School

My name is Mrs. Devivo and I teach Reading and dance at a high poverty school. My students are grades 9-12 trying to graduate and make a difference in the world they live in. My dance team is in its 2nd year and already we are ready to compete. My day job is teaching Reading. Most of my students are reading below grade level. My job is to get them ready for the state test so that they can graduate high school.

Good evening Mr. Hubbard, thank you so much for inquiring about my students. My students have worked very hard to get their dance jackets and we are now working on getting them costumes. The money we have received already is going to do great things. To answer your question my next project is make sure every dancer has dance sweat pants, Shoes, bags and leotards. To put a price around another 500. Anything donated is of course appreciated.
