The Twin Cities School of Dance Parent Guild is excited to bring you this new blog! We hope that you’ll use it as another resource in your child’s dance education.
The Parent Guild exists to serve TCSD in multiple ways: fundraising, creating community outreach opportunities, aiding in publicity, and providing school support. As with all nonprofit institutions, volunteerism is the driving force.
Throughout the year we’ll bring you information about how you can best serve our school. (Note: this blog is still evolving, so please be patient while we’re “in rehearsals.”)
Thanks for stopping by! We hope to see you at our first meeting of the school year: Thursday, August 27, @ 5:45 p.m.
–Zarina Plath and Marcie Byers, Parent Guild Co-Presidents
