To All Our Supporters:
Sharron Miller’s Academy for the Performing Arts (SMAPA) wishes to thank you for making this the best Scholarship Benefit Concert and Fundraiser ever!!! Ads, boosters, contributions and donations of goods and services far surpassed our expectations. This year’s proceeds came in at just over $7000. We are truly grateful for each and everyone of you who helped make this possible!
Thanks to you we can continue providing tuition assistance to the many deserving young people who wish to dance, many of whom come from underserved communities in which SMAPA provides outreach programs. Our Free Boys Ballet Program on Saturdays, serving boys between the ages of 10 and 15, can continue; and our Performance Workshop Ensemble, currently made up of 15 gifted and talented pre-professional young dancers can continue to grow in number and we can continue to provide all participants full merit-based scholarships annually.
Exposure to and participation in the arts can truly make a profound difference in a child’s life! The Board of Directors, Fundraising Committee, faculty and administrative staff of SMAPA offer all of you our heartfelt thanks for helping us to make that difference!
Have a wonderful summer and we hope to see you again next year.
Sharon Miller, Artistic Director
