Donors Choose has funded students of PS 56 Queens, The Harry Eichler School in Richmond Hills, NY to participate in a year of fabulous dance education with the Joyce Theater for 2009-2010.
American Idol season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert challenged his fans to support performing arts in public schools around the nation. Adam’s fans from all over the world accepted his challenge and gave—often in amounts of $9.11 in honor of 9/11. As a result, 131 students are able to be involved in the Joyce’s Dance Education Program this season.
The Joyce will send a Teaching Artist to PS 56Q for students to work on four performances for study throughout the year. PS 56 Q teachers are also looking forward to attending professional development at the Joyce along with evening performances at the theater.
We are thrilled and amazed by the generosity of those who gave so our students could express their creativity through dance in these trying economic times. Bravo, Donors Choose! Bravo, Adam Lambert! Bravo, all who gave and continue to give!
