Dillsburg Arts Council Begins Capital Campaign
Polar Bear Dance Camp was started in 2017 and is run by Jason Reed, the instructor for the Artist in Residency Program in the Northern York County School District.
We recently were informed that our program is a model program for the Artist in Residency program for the state of Pennsylvania and we are so very fortunate to have Jason as our artist. This year the Dance Camp will be:
2018 Polar Bear Summer Dance Camp
Watch our web site and also the NYCDSD web sites for more information to come.
The AIR program is provided by the Cultural Alliance of York County and funded with a matching grant provided by that organization and matched by the Polar Bear Foundation and local PTO groups.
Here are the latest in what we have to offer in free classes, speakers, and performances.
Dillsburg is a thriving community offering many programs and learning opportunities in the arts. Explore this website to find out how you can participate!
These cover a few of the performances and programs sponsored by the Dillsburg Arts and revitalization Council. It is our endeavor to feature local artists and youth whenever possible also to have programs for young people to inspire them to develop their talents in the arts.
The Dillsburg Arts and Revitalization Council has begun its Capital Campaign for the repair of Historic Monaghan Church, their home base and location for concerts and programs. This is a result of decreased state and federal funding for projects involving the arts and the repair of historic structures.
The Dillsburg Arts and Revitalization Council has been actively involved in the improvement of the Dillsburg Area community since 1998.
State and federal funding for programs and repair of the historic church have diminished to a point that threatens the continuation of these programs. The roof on the church is in need of repair and in order to do that monies would have to be used that pay for our programs. This is something we do not want to do, so we are reaching out to the community for donations to assist with the maintenance of Historic Monaghan (the oldest Presbyterian Church west of the Susquehanna River) and take care of the roof.
Watch the Dillsburg Banner and our Web Site for future news and articles on the project and “thank you” so very much for all your support in the past and for our future.
