Porscha

Chief Financial Officer

Finance and education are the foundation of a successful future, which so happens to be my two passions. I am a sixth-grade math teacher at an urban charter school, I’m on the frontline everyday working with the youth of my community. I consider myself very lucky to be in the position of assisting young people reach their goals in dance through financial aid resources . Although, I am not well versed in the performing arts world I understand the role scholarships and financial assistance play in breaking barriers to extraordinary opportunities.

Helen

Wellness Coordinator & Grant Writer

Helen contributes two roles to our team! Her engagement, well-being coaching and positive outcomes for youth and families in the community over a decade will support dancers the opportunity to experience how to become their best selves emotionally. Helen’s first hand knowledge of the economical challenges dance families face with tuition, costumes and fees for competition will allow her the opportunity to seek sources of funding within the community to support dancers and the organization.
