Anaheim, CA (PRWEB) September 2, 2007
In honor of the renewed strength and spirit of dance communities in New Orleans, LA, Discount Dance Supply, a California based online/mail-order dancewear company, donated $250,000 worth of dance supplies to the New Orleans Ballet Association (NOBA). The dance apparel, shoes, and accessories were further distributed to local dance teams, companies, churches and community organizations that provide dance activities for local youth.
"We're very happy that our company is in the position to help children in New Orleans that love to dance," said Brian Hill, owner of Discount Dance Supply. "We're happy to send dancewear and lend our support to those that could use our help."
NOBA is devoted exclusively to the art of dance and is recognized nationally for its non-profit deeds and youth programming.
"Since Katrina, we have been able to renew partnerships in the New Orleans area and reach more than 250 children each semester through year-round programming," said Jenny R. Hamilton, Executive Director for NOBA. "Many of these children and our teaching artists lost everything in the wind and flood waters, and they have been incredibly touched by the gifts of the supplies that will keep them dancing."
For over 14 years, Discount Dance Supply has contributed to numerous organizations, associations and individuals who support the art of dance. Fundraising events and talent competitions such as Starpower, have embraced stable sponsorship from Discount Dance Supply. The company has sponsored many dance and theater productions for local schools and remains a vital source for parents, instructors and dancers.
