About Will Dance 4

Pointe Shoes in Alexandria, VAWill Dance 4 … is an organization under the Footlights umbrella dedicated to helping the dance community through social entrepreneurship.

As it says above our hope is that no one will be denied the opportunity to dance. We wish to recognize dancers and dance groups for achievement in dance, and strive to provide the dance community with a way to recognize their peers. Our goal is to help dancers and dance groups raise money for their charitable endeavors and charitable causes close to them.

This effort is a dream for Joy Ellis, owner of Footlights Dance and Theatre Boutique.  Joy has been an avid supporter of the arts community in Frederick, Silver Spring, Alexandria and all the surrounding communities.  It is Footlights’ goal to give back to an art that has helped us thrive.

Endeavors

The Thomas F Waters Memorial Fund

Dance Shoes in Alexandria, VA

Tom Waters was an inspirational dance instructor who taught in Frederick County for 50 years! In May of 2010, at the age of 62, he passed away due to complications from early on-set Alzheimer’s. A benefit was held in his honor at the Weinberg Center for the Arts in the summer of 2010.  Proceeds from the benefit were used to start the Thomas F. Waters Memorial Fund held at the Community Foundation of Frederick County. A portion of the proceeds was also donated to the Frederick County Alzheimer’s Association.  This fund provides scholarships to dancers at Frederick County dance studios who need help with tuition and supplies, and can also be used to fund Alzheimer programs here in Frederick County. Joy Ellis and Footlights nominated Thomas F. Waters for the Frederick County Arts Hall of Fame. Tom was inducted into the Arts Hall of Fame on October 19th, 2011.  A Gift of Love: The Legacy of Thomas F. Waters If you care to make an individual donation to the Thomas F. Waters Memorial Fund it can be mailed to the Community Foundation of Frederick County at 312 E. Church St. Frederick, MD 21701 and designate the Thomas F. Waters Memorial Fund.

Bald Ballerina – Maggie Kudirka

Dance Shoes in Silver Spring, MarylandMaggie Kudirka, who has shopped Footlights since she was three, was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer at the age of 23 in June of 2014.  At the time, Maggie was dancing with the Joffrey Concert Group in NYC.  The costs of battling cancer are enormous even with health insurance as it does not cover all expenses.  Footlights carries the line of Bald Ballerina warm-ups and tee shirts with ALL proceeds going back to Maggie’s cause.
