Texas A&M College Dance Trip 2022

Verified Non-Profit

Verified Non-Profit

The Description

With these funds I will pay for each Moving Ground Dance Company member to travel to College Station, TX to participate in a personalized College Dance Day experience!  These fees cover the Charter Bus and Hotel for 4 days.  Any money raised beyond this amount will help to cover food costs per student.  So far each dancer has participated in a community dance workshop and candle fundraiser to offset their costs and invest in their trip, but fundraising has been a real challenge with the COVID boundaries.  This trip is very special as 10 of the 16 MGDC members are seniors and will graduate in May!

Back Up Plan

If we do not reach our goal I will purchase as much of the trip costs as possible.  We will offer one more community dance workshop to continue to raise funds for this amazing trip!

Thank you so much to all of our investors for MGDC!  Our Texas A&M trip was cancelled at the last minute due to the icy weather we were having as we tried to head down that way, so we had to do some quick regrouping.  This was a devastating blow to our group.  We as a company came together to find a new way to use these support funds and elected to go with team bonding and leadership training.  This coming Saturday April 16th, we will spend 5 hours at Group Dynamix doing team building and leadership activities as a company!  Thank you so much for your support!  While we had to change our plans due to the Texas weather we are very excited to continue to build our dance community!
