Reach Out & Help Keep Dance Alive in the US Virgin Islands
There is a wonderful dance school in the US Virgin Island called Music in Motion – like everyone else, the school has been involved in recovery efforts from catastrophic storms this
year. The determined executive director, Charlita Schuster was able to open a 5-week camp for students there despite having lost most all of their equipment, supplies and dance attire. She recently sent in a list of needs. On behalf of this organization, we are reaching out to IABD membership.
It would be deeply appreciated if anyone/organization could send dance attire to her at, Music in Motion, P.O. Box 4879 Kingshill, St. Croix, VI 00851. Please see the list of needed items below. If you cannot provide assistance, please be sure to pass this information along to others who might be able to assist. Thank you in advance for your efforts.
From the Director—
Hopefully, this list can be passed on to other organizations that may be able to contribute to the children of Music in Motion. We serve ages 3-22 in our youth program.
List of Dance Wear:
- Ballet Slippers
- Dance Skirts
- Jazz Shoes
- Tap Shoes
- Leg Warmers
- Dance Bags
- Dance Shorts
- Jazz Pants
Music in Motion School of Higher Dance Education
Music in Motion
Music in Motion School of Higher Dance Education is a dance school located on the island of St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. Founded in 1983, Music in Motion provides professional ballet training to children ages 3-19 in an after school/extra-curricular program. Classes are very disciplined, focusing on positive behaviors and attitudes and high self-esteem while training students as if they are all potential career dancers. Ballet training uses the Vaganova method, however, tap, jazz, modern, lyrical, hip-hop and cultural dances (African, Calypso, Quadrille, Latin) are also part of the curriculum for the more advanced performers.
