Barb’s Centre for Dance is pleased to announce that donations in the amount of $40,137.91 will be made to area charitable organizations from funds raised during Barb’s Centre for Dance holiday shows, “Spirit of The Holidays, A Celebration of Dance”. Shows were held in Green Bay at The Meyer Theatre on December 1st and in Appleton at the Xavier Fine Arts Theater on December 15th. The holiday dance programs featured original tap, jazz, lyrical and ballet works choreographed to both traditional and contemporary holiday music. This year also featured a section from The Nutcracker presented by Ballet 360 Academy. The monies were raised through ticket sales, a silent auction during the weekend, a miracle minute fundraiser during each show, along with a bake sales and candy cane sales. A special thank you to Witt Ford Auto, On the Mark Solutions and an anonymous donor who matched the miracle minutes.
The following organizations are benefactors from the event:
