Aurora's Memorial Dance Fund

The Dance Emporium is committed to providing dance education and t​raining to it's dancers and their families.  We're pleased to announce the addition of Aurora's Memorial Dance Fund to our offerings for our families.

Who is Aurora and how is she making a difference?​​

Aurora’s Memorial Dance Fund was created for a sweet little girl  who passed away at the age of 22 months in a tragic accident. For Auror​a’s angelversary,  her mom has asked that friends and family conduct a random act of kindness for someone, or donate in some way,  that speaks to them in Aurora’s name. 

Aurora’s story came to us from a former student and instructor who is close with Aurora's family.  What started as a simple text to place a donation, has now become Aurora's Memoral Dance Fund.  

Aurora's mom was a dancer and previously owned a ballroom dance studio..  This love of dance was passed on to Aurora, who in turn shared it with her entire family. 

Aurora was able to take her very first dance class fitted with perfect pink ballet slippers and tutu. On her Angelversary we would be honored to help her memory dance in the world a little longer by donating to a current student or family with financial hardships. ​​​

Aurora’s fund will help ensure that families in need will have less worry about figuring out how to provide the dancewear, shoes or dance classes for their child.

Donations taken at The Dance Emporium, will benefit a current student and/or family enrolled at the studio. Donations will be collected

throughout the year and donated to a student to be used towards class tuition or dance apparel. Donations collected will be awarded  on Aurora’s angelversary, July 7th.
