Peggy Ply Memorial Scholarship Fund
Our community lost a wonderful friend recently, as our amazing teacher and choreographer Peggy Ply quite unexpectedly went on to her reward. In our grief, we have searched our hearts for an appropriate memorial for our unforgettable friend. Peggy lovingly invested excellent instruction in her students, finding and bringing out the best in the many lives she touched. We believe the most appropriate way we can honor Peggy’s memory is to establish a scholarship fund for hard-working young dancers who do not have the financial means to access quality training.
We invite you to help us found this living memorial to our dear teacher and friend by contributing to the ~ Peggy Ply Memorial Scholarship Fund ~
These scholarships will be awarded, based on availability of funds, to young dancers who:
– clearly demonstrate financial need, based on income to household size ratio.
– show outstanding commitment and effort in their calling to dance.
The scholarships will be awarded and reviewed each year, subject to the discretion of the staff of Dramatic Truth School of the Arts, who will retain the right to revoke scholarship funding from any student who demonstrates a significant decline in their commitment to the standards of the school.
Scholarships will cover a full year’s tuition for the classes required in the student’s chosen professional track.
Dramatic Truth School of the Arts does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin, in its programs, education, scholarships, or admissions policies.
With extreme gratitude to our Lord for the years we were privileged to enjoy Peggy’s encouragement.
Sponsor a Production
Dramatic Truth Ballet Theatre productions are professional productions. They require excellence, professionalism, beautiful lighting and sets, costumes, venues large enough and with the right equipment to bring our story to the audience, and more. In addition to the physical and costuming costs of a production, the dancers and choreographers need to be paid, there are operational costs for the many rehearsals, and videography, photography, and advertising are necessities for a successful production. Dramatic Truth Ballet Theatre produces at least two full scale ballets per year, one being the annual Mystery of Christmas, in which students from the school also participate. Be a PRODUCTION SPONSOR to help bring our powerful and poignant ballets to audiences in Kansas City and around the world. We offer varying benefits based on the level of sponsorship for our productions. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
Teacher Continuing Education
Company members and Instructors are encouraged to continue their dance education by taking professional level master classes and intensives. For instance, some have participated in the Martha Graham Summer Intensive in New York City for 2 weeks, to receive the best training available in the Graham technique. Dramatic Truth students benefit from the tools our teachers bring back into the classroom to both grow our modern department and to create the BEST Graham technique available in the Greater Kansas City Area. The costs for such a trip are are well worth the investment. The ability to provide training opportunities for our teachers is a contributing factor to our success in providing high level instruction for our students.
