"Madeline Adventures"  & "Dances for Unity"

 

BRAVO SIMBT and PSPA! To amazing SOLD OUT SHOWS! The Pennsylvania School of the Performing Arts and non-profit Spirit in Motion Ballet Theater is so proud  of, "Madeline and Dances of Unity"  that was on Saturday June 7th at 2:00 pm & 5:30 pm and Sunday June 8th at 2:30 pm.  Professional dancers joined the beautiful young dancers of this spirited troupe dance to fun and uplifiting music in a unique two-act production. The production opened with “Dances of Unity,” a tribute to the former South African President and fearless leader, Nelson Mandela. This montage of movement, inspired by Mandela’s legacy, will illustrate the hardships he overcame, the trail that he blazed and show how one man’s dream can change the world. In Act II, we follow "Madeline's Worldly Adventures" the tale of a young girl and her friends as they embark on the journey of a lifetime! Proceeds from this incredible performance will go to support local organization, "Come Unity," a non-profit that helps bring clean water and to provide education for girls in Africa.

"Madeline" Gives Back

June 2012

The funds raised during PSPA's "Madeline's Adventures & Dances of Hope" are a contribution to the water well project and the people in Kenya.  This well will benefit the community of Ongata-Rongai, a slum area just outside of Nairobi, the capital city.  Nearly 45,000 people live in Rongai.  The main road is paved while adjacent paths are made of dirt and lined with garbage and sewage. Most days there is enough food to supply the orphans with a breakfast of porridge and a simple lunch.  Some days there is not. 

Spirit in Motion Ballet Theater joins to help Kristin Scott- Naylor again, PSPA/SIMBT guest choreographer and performer, who is a professional dancer   Ms. Scott spent seven weeks living in Ongata-Rongai last summer working at ‘The Center’.  Last year money raised through an event like  “Dances of Hope” paid teachers’ salaries, bought backpacks, took kids to the hospital, bought mattresses for families sleeping on the ground, purchased firewood for cooking food and much more.
