Students at Cochran Elementary were so excited for their Bridging Cultures residency program this morning, led by the Louisville Ballet‘s Education Outreach staff. What they didn’t know was Fund for the Arts’ Barbara Sexton Smith would be stopping by to pay them a special visit!
The Louisville Ballet posted their “Music to Dance to” project on power2give. The purpose of the project was to raise money for a portable sound system to be used in residency programs in more than 20 Jefferson County schools. “Music to Dance to” fully funded, and we were delighted to present the check to the Louisville Ballet at a residency program so we could witness the magic first hand. And guess what, you can see it, too!
