Hear The Art

Heart The Art is a performance showcase put together by the Emerge Dance Team. This show is the first time each season that our routines will be unveiled to friends, family and the general public. This show is held at Mount St. Joseph University with full costume, makeup, props, lighting and more. In addition to all of our groups routines, the Seniors get to showcase their solos, duets and trios for their final season.

Heart The Art is about more than just the dancing. Each season the dancers choose a charity that the show is dedicated to and will benefit. The charity of choice is invited to speak about their cause and a portion of all ticket sales are donated to the charity of choice.

2020 Charity of Choice: The Dragonfly Foundayion
Mission: The fight for excellence in pediatric cancer treatment is important, but no less important is the commitment we must make to support the families that strive for fulfilling and complete lives during and after treatment. Though treatment may end, and illness may be cured or managed, the long-term effects of factors like internal group tension, familial isolation, post-traumatic stress, the anxiety of recurrence, and the emotional, physical and financial toll on the family unit often linger for years, yes years, to come. While the importance of quality healthcare is a common shared value, we must remember to offer families a holistic, uncompromising, fighting chance at well-being, which is our urgent, passionate mission.

Anderson Ferry
Food Pantry

2016 Charity of Choice: Anderson Ferry Food Pantry
Mission: The Anderson Ferry Food Pantry was started over 40 years ago. At first, the church saw the need of families during the Thanksgiving holiday. Believing Thanksgiving was a time when as Americans, we give thanks for our blessings, the church decided it needed to be that blessing for those in need.
