Why Join

Ever since Bob's daughter Morgan began ballet instruction at the age of 5 with Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet at the Barn, and later when I first met Morgan at a June Series performance in 1994 when she had just turned 12, our lives have been very much connected to CPYB and their mission.

We have seen how the program has grown and how the students have aspired to greatness, whether as principal dancers in ballet companies throughout the world, or in other fields of endeavor.

It was not a difficult decision when we set up our estate planning to include CPYB as one of our planned gifts. In addition to the planned gift in our wills, we have put into place the wish to continue support of CPYB through a family trust.

Through the years, we have witnessed the wonderful benefit the organization has been to the students who have passed through the program as well as to the community at large.
