WCSA's Dance department is putting on a Fall themed Carnival for students and families in the community of Cleveland! We are trying to raise money to purchase costumes, Dance shoes, and a dance space for the students concluding recital in May of 2018. This carnival will help us get closer to reaching our goal!
Why should you sponsor?
We would love a sponsor to support our event because this ultimate goal is that of Arts and culture. Most of the students in the dance program are residents of the inner-city of Cleveland. These students are taking Dance to broaden their horizon, enhance their thinking skills, improve their discipline and ultimately as an outlet for everyday life. I am the director of the program and I too, grew up in Cleveland and if it weren't for my dance instructor trying to show me the best there was out there, I could've fallen into the wrong things at a young age. I want to be that for these young adults and small children today and give back to the community that gave me so much!
My name is Càla Henderson and I am a 24 year old Dance Teaching Nurse! I have been dancing since I was 3, mostly in the city of Cleveland. I graduated from Cleveland School of the Arts in 2011 and went on to The Ohio State University where I received my bachelors in Fine Arts with Distinction in performance and choreography. I have been blessed to have been able to perform professionally with Verb Ballets in Cleveland, Ohio and also with Philadanco in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I have been teaching in the city of Cleveland since 2012 with a summer camp for inner city students called The Nehemiah Project. During my time at Ohio State, I taught competition dance at Pickerington Dance Academy for 3 years, where I won many awards for choreography. Currently, I am in the process of teaching dance at Westside, working part time as a nurse and going to school part time to get my second bachelors degree in nursing!
