Save-the-date! Wednesday, October 18, 2017, SMAPA will host its first SMAPATHON: 

You Can Make a Difference in a Child's Life in One Day! 

As friends of SMAPA we are appealing to you to support scholarships for underserved-deserving children and students from Pre-K to high school. Throughout the year we receive numerous scholarship requests from families in need who want to enroll their children in our dance education programs and camps. This year we have had an increase in those scholarship requests and need your help to extend and provide assistance for those seeking positive educational experiences to enrich their children’s lives but don’t have the financial means to do so. 

We are reaching out to our friends and others to join in and support us in providing those scholarships. 

Our goal is to raise $10,000.  

 Please join us to make a difference on October 18, 2017.  

 Our communication lines will remain open from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m. Any gift is welcomed. We have 100% participation from our faculty, staff and board members, so please help us meet our goal together. You may participate on-line HERE, you can stop by, or just give us a call.
