Dalton Dance Company Recognizes Service

Katie Patrick and Elena Leyssens april 2016 resize

Dalton Arts Project recently held its annual Dalton Dance Company recognition banquet at the Dalton Golf and Country Club. Dancers were recognized for their membership in Club D, a service organization started by the dancers at the inception of Dalton Arts Project, as a way of giving back to the community that supports them. Every dancer volunteers at least twenty hours of community service. This year there were seven dancers who volunteered more than 75 hours and six dancers who volunteered more than 100 hours of their time helping others. Awards were given for each level of service reached, with Dalton High School sophomore, Elena Leyssens, receiving top honors with 169 hours of volunteer service. Altogether, the 70 members of Dalton Dance Company donated more than 3500 hours of their time helping those in their community this year. The evening was spent celebrating the dancers, their achievements, and reaffirming what it means to be a primarily volunteer organization. Over the past year, through the ticket subsidy program for Nutcracker and the DDC March Madness Dance concert, the dancers performed for Dalton Whitfield Daycare, the Dalton Whitfield Senior Center, Friendship House, Girl Scout Troops, Liberty Baptist Church, and others. They also sent over 300 holiday cards to servicemen, collected over 400 cans of food for the Salvation Army, and held a clothing drive for Cherokee Estates. They donated ticket sales from their in-school performances to the Dalton High School Performing Arts department and Northwest Whitfield High School Drama Department and raised over $1700.00 for Big RED Reads with their Student Choreography Showcase. Dalton Dance Company celebrates the community that supports it.

The dancers of Dalton Arts Project’s Nutcracker recently took a break from rehearsals to write over 250 cards for the American Red Cross Holiday Mail for Heroes program which allowed them to “Give Something That Means Something” by sending cards of thanks and support to the members of the Armed Forces, veterans and their families. Holiday cards of the original Nutcracker art were filled with thanks, encouragement and holiday cheer from appreciative dancers. The cards will be distributed by the Red Cross to servicemen far away from home this holiday season.
