The School at Open Space would like to welcome you to our inaugural Young Artists’ Showcase!  The students have been hard at work all Spring preparing for this evening’s performances.  We would like to thank all of our families for your dedication to your children’s artistic development.  We feel beyond lucky to get to work with such wonderful young dancers.  We would also like to give a special thanks to tonight’s sponsors, Alan and Sharon Jones.  Through their generous financial support, we have been able to present tonight’s shows and beverage service free of charge.  Thank you Sharon and Alan.
