Together we can help sustain MYB and the employees who power it.

About the Project

The coronavirus pandemic has brought the United States and much of the world to a halt. One of the hardest parts of social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is giving up our daily routines. And for dancers, that means class. When MYB closed its doors beginning March 14, we suspended all public programming including all 20 plus DAILY classes. While this is impacting the daily lives of our community of dancers, we are anticipating that it will also have a severe economic impact on MYB.

The classes that are part of our Adult Program will be particularly impacted. MYB relies on the daily revenue from these “drop-in” classes to pay our employees- the teachers and musicians who make the classes possible. While MYB is closed we are losing approximately $7,500 per week without our “drop-in” classes. And with no classes our teachers and musicians cannot work. MYB is committed to paying our employees during the closing for as long as we are able but with no revenue coming in we need help.

Through this power2give.org Help MYB Combat Coronavirus campaign YOU can help. 100% of funds contributed will go directly to the salaries of our teachers and musicians who are unable to work while MYB is closed. All donations will be matched dollar for dollar by the Montgomery County Government.

We are currently exploring ways to continue our classes virtually to keep our community dancing from home. Whether the class is virtual or in the studio $10,000 will pay our employees for two weeks of drop-in classes.

As Governor Hogan recently stated about the coronavirus pandemic: “We are all in this together. Together we will get through this.” Together we can help sustain MYB and the employees who power it. Donate TODAY!
