Transforming Youth Through Dance!

Carol Mezzacappa was one of the founding directors of Young Dancers in Repertory (YDR) and the inspiration behind the organization. Her passing in 2004 lead the organization to develop a scholarship fund in her name. To memorialize her passing and continue her legacy, scholarships are awarded to needy and deserving dancers in two of YDR's programs: The Teenage Touring Ensemble and The Center for Dance Studies.


In difficult times, arts programs suffer dramatic cuts in funding. Importantly, arts activities are sometimes all children and youth have to make it through. Many families struggle with the costs of tuition each semester. Your generosity provides the financial means for youth to reach their dreams through dance.
