PNC grant gets low-income children dancing at Ballet Theatre of Maryland

Thanks to a grant from the PNC Foundation, preschoolers who might never have gotten a chance to try out a dance class will be pirouetting with professionals from the Ballet Theatre of Maryland.

PNC recently awarded an $18,000 grant to the Ballet Theatre of Maryland to enable low-income children in the area the chance to experience classical dance. The grant will help fund a new model called “Tiny Toes in the Studio,” which is a four-part program that will bring classes of preschoolers into the studio for two half-day sessions and provide resources for teachers to continue lessons back in the classroom, according to Dianna Cuatto, BTM’s artistic director.

“We believe this is a strong program that will develop lasting benefits for children,” she said. “It’s an experience that many of the kids will not have again.”
