The Benefit 2021
Featuring The Competitive Division at Elite Studios
Each year Elite Studios hosts a phenomenally energetic, professional, and entertaining showcase of talent as performed by our Competitive Division dancers. What began as a student led project, The Benefit has evolved into a culmination of months of hard work and over $34,000 in fundraising for local Atlanta & Georgia based charities. Elite Studios not only teaches the value of a quality dance education but instills the value of service to others through dance. The Benefit is our way of giving back to the community that gives us so much!
When planning for this year’s Benefit began, we firstly considered what we could even achieve in such a difficult season – we recognize that many families have been negatively impacted by this pandemic. Our discussion, however, led us to this conclusion – while each one of us has been impacted in these past 6 months, it is still our mission to use our combined efforts to help those in need. Hundreds of thousands of Americans across our country and in our own Sandy Springs community cannot provide basic needs like food and supplies for their families during this time, and our studio community can help.
This year’s Benefit is more timely than ever – and we could not be more inspired to announce that we will be partnering with Solidarity Sandy Springs, a grassroots organization that began as a temporary food bank when the pandemic hit in March. Initially formed to support local families who were struggling to feed their families, it quickly became apparent that the needs in our neighborhood were overwhelming and the little food bank morphed into a full-scale charitable organization whose mission became to support these families for as long as the support was needed. Solidarity Sandy Springs is 100% volunteer-run and is in great need of funding and volunteers to keep its doors open; we at Elite Studios could not be happier to be supporting such a worthy cause and giving back to those in need in our neighborhood.
