Open Issues

  • Jana’s Research Funding
      • Jana and her research partner Meredith have been asked to present their findings on the effects of full body training for dancers (how injury rates compare when dancers undergo conditioning in addition to dance practice) in Singapore and the trip will cost $6000
      • Funding to Date:
        • They’ve won the Iris Garland Program Enhancement Fund ($2000)
        • Dance Student Union hopes to donate $500 to the trip
        • She also has a Go-Fund-Me account with $50 (should we post the link on the BPK facebook page, or is it not to be used for the funding of a few students?)
        • She has asked several companies as well as dance affiliated associations for sponsorship and awaiting word on a few
        • Planning on holding a Movie-Night Fundraiser as well
      • Jana’s asking us for additional support
