The Lawrence Arts Center kicked off a fundraising effort Sunday for the LAC’s Dance Shoe Scholarship Fund.
Dozens of people enjoyed music and dancing during an English Tea Dance at the center, to help raise money for the new fund.
Organizers said some dancers will go through multiple shoes per month as they advance in their art. Many families can not afford the extra expense. Ballet shoes can cost close to $100 per pair.
