CPYB Dancers Raise $1,277 Benefiting Project SHARE
Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet performance supports fellow non-profit
Carlisle, Pa. (May 22, 2012) – Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet students collected $1,277 during the Saturday, May 19, No Place Like Home performances held at CPYB Warehouse Studios in Carlisle. All donations benefit Project SHARE.
“The ballet was delightful,” says Elaine Livas, Project SHARE executive director. “CPYB’s annual show is such an encouragement to us. The $1,277 raised will help purchase the equivalent of $12,000 worth of food and we are so grateful to the ballet and all the dancers for helping us to do that.”
No Place Like Homeis CPYB’s way of giving back to the community for more than a half century of support. Audiences in this year’s performances were treated to some of CPYB’s youngest students in "Soldier and Dolls," the antics during a high-spirited outing in the park – complete with mischievous children – in "Dance Along," CPYB student-choreographed works created during FirstSteps, and excerpts from Balanchine’s "Who Cares?" and "Divertimento No. 15."
“CPYB’s support for Project SHARE is a natural outgrowth of the mission of both organizations to improve the community through personal empowerment and cultural enrichment,” comments Alan Hineline, CPYB chief executive officer and resident choreographer. “CPYB is proud to continue its part to help ensure the viability of this important organization.”
CPYB is supported by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, and Cultural Enrichment Fund.
