2015 OSI-Baltimore Community Fellow Brian Gerardo’s Baltimore Dance Crews Project (BDCP) is launching a series of pay-what-you-can dance classes, the Purple Box Workshops. A purple box will be made available at the beginning of each class, where guests can make a cash contribution, if they can, but no one will be turned away if they’re unable to afford the standard $15 per hour drop-in rate.
Guests will also have the option of contributing to help a fellow dancer.
All profits will go towards bringing an afterschool program to a Baltimore City school. For every $150 we raise, we will bring a workshop to a school and, every $2500 supports a 16-week afterschool club (aka school crew).
