In celebration of "Throwback Thursday", we took a trip down memory lane and pulled out the files from the first ever Brighton Dance Festival back in 2010! (You can see the original #tbt posting on our Instagram page)
Since 2010, we have:
doubled the number of faculty (all local, Michigan-based educators)
increased faculty pay by 30%
almost tripled the number of students
added a Youth Program to the festival
and given away over $35,000 in donations and internship scholarships
Wow, it's amazing to see how things grow!
These little steps of progress mean the world to us at Brighton Dance Festival, and we're so happy to have such strong support and love from our dance community. We value not only being able to offer great training opportunities to students, but also being able to support the local dance educators that make all of this possible!
Cheers to everyone who helps to make BDF the inspirational force that it is!
