Stavna receives their first GRANT!!!!
We are excited to announce, that we are the proud recipients of the 2018 Cultural Equity Grant from CultureWorks Grant program. This support will help fund our East End Reach community dance project in Richmond, VA.
The goal of Stavna Ballet’s outreach program, Stavna Reach, is to inspire youth to reach their full potential through dance. This multifaceted program serves at-risk youth through Greater Richmond Area partners including Chesterfield County Public Libraries, Peter Paul Development Center, Children’s Museum of Richmond, and Robinson Theater Community Arts Center. Our outreach efforts have the ability to positively impact children’s lives through dance, and teach valuable skills like the following:
- Learning healthy habits through regular engagement in physical activity
- Improving analytical thinking skills by memorizing choreography
- Increasing body awareness and overall strength and flexibility
- Creating positive social skills through interaction with instructors and peers
This CultureWorks grant will help Stavna bring accessible ballet to the East End and enrich the lives of children through art. Thank you so much for believing in our vision and your dedication to making our community a better place. To learn more about this amazing organization https://richmondcultureworks.org
