2022 GDS Online Dessert Auction

Back by popular demand — our GDS Online Dessert Auction! Bid on wonderful desserts homemade by our GDS students, teachers and friends.

The money we raise will help us continue our mission of being a welcoming community of dance. In particular, it will help us get through the holiday season when attendance tends to be down, and when we are closed two weeks at Christmas and New Year. Glenwood Dance Studio is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization.

Bidding will start at 8:00 a.m. CST on Tuesday, November 1, and will end at 8:30 p.m. CST on Sunday, November 6. We will have items available for local pickup or delivery, as well as items that can be mailed — perfect for our out-of-town friends and family! We will be emailing and posting the auction link when we have our final list of desserts.

Interested in donating a dessert? Please email us at info@glenwooddancestudio.com — the more desserts, the sweeter our fundraiser will be!

2020 Fall Fundraiser Update

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who participated in our 2020 fundraiser! We had 20 people donate 32 desserts that were bid on by 51 different individuals. We had 56 students and teachers perform, representing 17 different classes. We had 73 people make donations (including the dessert auction) and raised a grand total of $3,977! This is as much as we would typically make at our in-person fundraiser, which is amazing!

It is very moving to be part of such an amazing community of dancers, students and supporters. Thank you to everyone for making this online event such a success!

We have created a playlist on YouTube of the individual performance videos (except for Intermediate Contemporary due to copyright issues). You can view them here:

Thank you to everyone who bid on desserts!

Normally we would charge a ticket price for our fall fundraiser. We can’t do that this year, but we hope you will still consider making a donation to support our mission of creating a welcoming community of dance! Glenwood Dance Studio is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization.
