Formed in the spring of 2007, Dance Chance exists today as a partnership with Springfield Public Schools, the Community Center of Springfield and Caring Communities to provide free dance instruction to children at low-income schools. During the 2015-2016 season, Springfield Ballet instructors traveled to
Boyd Elementary, McGregor Elementary, Weaver Elementary, Weller
Elementary for weekly dance
instruction. Each fall, Springfield Ballet provides an in-school demonstration at an assembly for each school. At the completion of each session, participants demonstrate what they’ve learned for family and friends in a public performance. More than 600 children have benefited from this program since its inception.
This program is supported by:
