Evidence of our success, focus on goals, using our creativity-staying in a solution mode. Our 2013 Performance Line-up for Arts Are Education and community outreach performances, formal concerts and the next New York education trip were presented. Fundraising, marketing, facility improvement and service goals, as well as the importance of taking time to congratulate ourselves for a job well done even as we set more goals and look to the future.
The upcoming "Goals & Dreams" speaking competition, where students have the opportunity to compete for dance tuition scholarships and the search for help with an on-line auction, were also discussed. Also talked about were updated membership manuals, new company dancewear, and how important it is for each of us to “show up and do community service with a good heart.”
