"This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a Regrant Program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by CNY Arts. 

With the generous support of the John Winter Family Fund, fundraising by our students and parents, the Leatherstocking Ballet was able to bring the talents of Dayton Ballet professionals Katy Bowlby and Paul Gilliam as well as Biboti, Brett Bogardus, and Caitlyn Schrader to the summer school Dance Intensive 2018. The progress of these students and their heightened love of dance was on display at the end of camp demonstration. Many thanks to all who supported our program and dancers!
