Aurora's Memorial Dance Fund

The Dance Emporium has always been committed to providing dance education and t​raining to it's dancers and their families.  We're please to announce the addition of Aurora's Memorial Dance Fund to our offerings for our families.

Who is Aurora and how is she making a difference?​​

Aurora’s Memorial Dance Fund was created for a young dancer who passed away at the age of 22 months. For Auror​a’s angelversary her mom has asked that friends and family conduct a random act of kindness for someone or donate in some way that speaks to them in Aurora’s name. On her Angelversary we would be honored to help her memory dance in the world a little longer by donating to a current student or family with financial hardships. ​​​

Aurora’s story came to us from a former student and instructor, who is close with Aurora's family and wanted to help.  From the first text asking if we could pass along a contribution in Aurora's memory to a dancer who may need items to start their dance year, we knew this was something important to get behind.

Aurora’s fund will help ensure that families in need will have less worry about figuring out how to provide the dancewear, shoes or dance classes for their child.

Donations taken at The Dance Emporium, will benefit a current student and/or family enrolled at the studio. Donations will be taken throughout the year and donated to a student to be used towards class tuition or dance apparel. Donations collected will be given on Aurora’s angelversary, July 7th.
