Dance Studio Needs Mirrors

Hello, my name is Mr. Bobby Ford and I am a professional choreographer and dance teacher.  I recently began teaching at an amazing charter school called Imagine Bella Academy in Cleveland, Ohio. The school serves students and families in grades kindergarten through 6th grade.  The dance program is brand new this school year and I am so happy to be starting our students lives in dance.  The room is spacious and has many outlets.  The main problem is that the room has no mirrors.  The one requirement for a dance room, beyond anything else, is mirrors.  In order for any of the students to connect and understand their movement is to see it from another angle.  This is why mirrors are so important in the learning process.  Please help me give these budding dancers a small gift to help them grow! You can donate by going to Imagine Bella Academy's Facebook page or at this link: https://www.gofundme.com/bhpmgp2g

Kind Classrooms

How kindness jars work is you have to fill a kindness jar with at least 250 pom pom balls. To fill the jar you have to be kind a lot and each kind act earns a pom for the jar. We fill the kind jar at school. Every class is trying to fill their jar by winter break. This is how kindness jars work.
