Dancing Angels Foundation would like to wish all of you a Happy, Healthy New Year!!!! Thank you for your love and support and cheers to 2016!!!!!
Happy Monday! We wanted to pass along these great pictures of scholarship recipient Jordan Stephens, who you might recall is attending the prestigious Joffrey Ballet School in NYC. She is doing great! She has also been selected to appear in a magazine article in December. Jordan is extremely grateful for the support of all our friends and donors. You can tell from her smile that she exemplifies our motto of "celebrating life through dance".
Gary Sinise, and The Gary Sinise Foundation, contribute so much good to the world. They truly live out their mission to "serve our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need".
We are touched by their support, both of Dancing Angels Foundation, and also the first responders who answered the call during the tragedy on March 6, 2012.
Please watch this short video about their latest support. Thank you is not enough to express our gratitude for the love they have shown.
The Task Force Dagger Foundation is another fantastic foundation that has provided personal support to Louise, and has now made a generous donation to Dancing Angels Foundation!
Thank you Keith David and all involved with Task Force Dagger for supporting our mission of Celebrating Life Through Dance.
Congratulations to Jordan Stephens - one of our 2015 Dancing Angels scholarship recipients. Jordan will be attending the prestigious Joffrey Ballet School in New York City!
Jordan is a wonderful young lady who we know is going to see continued success in her career.
Her mother, Anetta Stephens sent this beautiful note:
"I am so grateful for the generosity of this caring foundation! My heart is so full at the very thought of how you are helping to shape and guide the lives of dancers in the memory of your beautiful daughters. Thank you for supporting Jordan Stephens. Your kindness will never be forgotten!”
We are proud to announce our latest 2015 Dancing Angels Scholarship winner - Savannah Willis. Savannah currently attends the North Carolina School of the Arts at UNC, as a sophomore in high school. This is already an impressive accomplishment, and now Savannah has been selected to attend the Philadelphia Ballet Theatre's Intensive Summer program. This is an amazing opportunity and we are so happy to be able to help her get to the next level in her career!
When Dancing Angels began, less than a year ago, we started by partnering with Cumberland Dance Academy in Hope Mills, North Carolina. This is the school that Isabella and Natalia both attended, and Tara - the owner - has been wonderful to work with.
Cumberland Dance will always have a prominent place in the Dancing Angels family, and we will continue supporting their dancers. In addition, we are excited to announce that we are expanding beyond this local school. We are currently evaluating candidates at top state and national programs. These programs are much more costly than the local program, but also present opportunities for us to have an even larger positive impact on the world.
Much more to come - please contact us if you are interested in more information, and/or taking on a larger role. As always, thank you for being a part of our mission to "Celebrate Life Through Dance".
On February 12, 2014 Louise had the honor of attending a meeting of the Brunswick Town Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. The DAR was founded in 1890 and consists of 3000 chapters across the world. She shared her story and how it led her to create the Dancing Angels Foundation. After the presentation she was touched by the many kind words of support and encouragement followed with warm hugs. The Dancing Angels Foundation would also like to thank them for their generous donations to support our cause. We look forward to seeing them again!
