"Volunteers are L
VE in motion." -author unknown
Volunteering and giving back are two of the greatest ways to make a difference in the lives of others! Many of our dancers volunteer in a number of ways, at the studio, and outside of the studio with our TBS staff. Our dancers at The Ballet Studio volunteer with assisting our instructors during classes, volunteer at TCR (Trenton Cat Rescue), perform at nursing homes and assisted living facilities, collect items for causes, such as Womanspace, as well as making a positive difference in the community."Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they have the heart." - Elizabeth Andrew. Thank you so much to all of our TBS volunteer students and TBS families for your generosity and for all that you all do to make this world a better place!
For several dance seasons, we have had our dancers who volunteer as a group, at Trenton Cat Rescue, adopt out (and also adopt) many kittens and cats to furever homes. Several dancers donated items to the rescue.
Our dancers, and their families and friends, collected many brand new items, from soap to coats, for HomeFront and Womanspace. Our competition team performed at the Merwick Care and Rehabilitation Center in Plainsboro this past March, and were invited back because of how happy they made the residents. They are also volunteering as "Angels in the Outfield" for the Miracle League of Mercer County.
Our dancers have donated dance (ballet, tap, hip-hop, and jazz) shoes, and lightly used dance attire to dancers in need.
Our graduated TBS dancers have come to the rehearsal and recital, helping backstage with our students. Students studying theatre and the arts help with recital choreography, lighting, and mixing songs for the recital cd.
During the holidays, our dancers collected toys for "Joey\'s Little Angels" as well as volunteering at Cat rescues for pet "pictures with Santa" raising funds for animals in need.
The following dancers are our student assistants who come to the studio, each week, to help our dancers during class. From tying a preschooler\'s ballet shoe, to demonstrating advanced level technique, our student assistants make a difference in each and every class!!
