Thank you to all the individuals and businesses who donated to our silent auction and advertised in our program, and to all of our volunteers who helped with Dance Night 2017. We are overjoyed to announce that the 2 Dance Night evenings – with ticket sales, flowers, bake sale, DVD sales, the 50-50 draw and silent auction items – raised over $——- for the Dance program!! Thanks again!
These funds help pay for many things in the dance department, including accompanists, guest choreographers, costumes, equipment, and field trips
For 2017-2018, a number of fundraising activities are underway:
On November 17th, 2016 Canterbury Dance held its third Coffee House! It was a rousing success with a great turnout and fabulous pieces from everyone. Between tickets sales and refreshments the event brought in over $—-. for the Program. Many thanks to our volunteers for such a successful night! Preliminary plans for a 2017 edition are in the works, so STAY TUNED!!
Dance Night 2017!
Our crowning event of the year will be held Thursday May 25, 2017 and Friday, May 26, 2017. Dance Night is the Dance Department’s single biggest fundraiser, which last year brought in approximately $——. These funds came from ticket sales, silent auction items, baked goods contributed by students and parents, sales of a professional-quality DVD of the night and a silent auction.
The Dance Night performances are choreographed and staged by Grade 12 students with Grade 11 and 12 dancers. There are also performances by each Grade 10 and Grade 11 class created by guest choreographers.
We look to our parents to help out in many ways – donate an item for the silent auction, volunteer for a few hours to help with the front of the house, or buy tickets and come out and support our students! If you would like to help solicit donations for the silent auction, or advertisements for the program, please feel free to print off copy of the attached letter that introduces our fundraising endeavour to businesses.
