8th Grade Capstone Dance Trip 

Help send the OGMS Capstone Dance Class to Vegas!

Our goal is to send eighteen talented dancers to Las Vegas, from May 31st to June 2nd, to tie what they have learned over three years of studying the culture and art form of hip hop, with OGMS teacher Damon Keller, into an unforgettable culminating experience.

The Capstone Dance students showcase their hip hop skills in front of live audiences, including at the Moda Center before a Portland Trail Blazers game and the Portland's Junior Rose Parade, St. John's Parade, and Kenton Community Parade. Each Capstone student maintains a weekly progress sheet, tracking attendance, grades, and attitude, and all have progressed from beginning through advanced dance classes in their three years at Ockley Green Middle School.

This trip to Las Vegas will provide an unparalleled educational experience for OGMS Capstone Dance students. The students will attend a live performance of "Timeless" by the world-renowned Jabbawockeez.  They will also have an opportunity to meet members of this iconic and culturally diverse professional dance crew and take part in a hip hop master class.

We believe that every student should have access to exciting and enriching experiences, regardless of their financial situation. Therefore, we are seeking direct donations from individuals, groups, and businesses, as well as hosting a variety of fundraising opportunities. Our hope is to make this opportunity equitable and accessible for all students who have qualified for the trip.

Your contribution will go towards providing these talented dancers with a once-in-a-lifetime experience that they will never forget. Your support will not only benefit these students, but it will also contribute to the growth and development of our community.

Ockley Green Middle School is a diverse school with incredible teachers, dedicated volunteers and, most importantly, an amazing group of students. By supporting this fundraiser, you will be showing your commitment to our community and helping to inspire the next generation of artists and performers.

Let's join together to send the Ockley Green Middle School Capstone Dancers to Vegas!
