New Studio Fundraiser

We still need your help!

With just a little over a week until the doors officially open, we're ramping up our fundraising efforts with a campaign to help get everything we need in place at the new studio for the fall session. So many of you have already been enormously generous, and we're hoping to inspire more giving with some creative new ways below, as well as some friendly competition. A donation at any level is a wonderful way to support your dancer, a loved one or friend that loves Irish dance and finds the Studio a special place.

And for those who participate, the Giving Tree will be our way of giving public recognition to all Atlanta Irish Dance donors. Located at the new studio entrance, the Giving Tree will be viewed by all families and visitors to our studio. A big shout out to those donors who have already 'made' the Giving Tree List (see below). We're also keeping track below on the class level participation percentages so you can keep up with those totals, too.
