Here's another ballet related kickstarter project...


"We are proud to give free annual scholarships to many of our talented students from low-income Brooklyn families. We are especially thankful to our home, the Kingsborough Community College - for its hospitality and welcoming atmosphere.
But the events of the last two weeks had a significant and unexpected effect on our ability to operate in a stable financial environment. As a result of Hurricane Sandy, Brighton Ballet lost its treasured collection of costumes made by our gifted staff for the last several years. These costumes were completely destroyed by the strong winds and flooding. We also lost thousands of dollars in revenue when Kingsborough Community College located at Manhattan Beach was closed for almost two weeks due to the damage from Sandy. On top of that, many families were devastated by the Hurricane and were unable either to bring their children for dancing classes or lost their ability to pay for their attendance."[/size]
