Spread the Love...
Of Moving Colors Productions is pleased to invite you to the fourth annual Byrde's Dancers Scholarship Luncheon, an effort that brings life-changing arts opportunities to children.
Each year, OMC presents Kick It Out, a community outreach project that involves 75-100 children from around the city. The project is a large one, encompassing four months of dance classes, learning under professional dancers, and performing alongside them around the community. Around half of these children are only able to participate in Kick It Out through the assistance of scholarships.
OMC is thrilled this year to announce a very special edition of Kick It Out that will continue to give children of all backgrounds the opportunity to experience the joy of dancing and performing and extend the reach of this program further than ever before. We hope you will join us in cultivating the Byrde’s Dancers Scholarship Fund, as we endeavor to bring this incredible opportunity to as many families as possible in 2021.
Your Virtual Adventure Awaits...
Online guests will be gifted a Byrde's Basket in preparation for their virtual event. This basket will hold prizes, games, snacks, drinks, and much more for use during the event. The virtual event will host games, raffles, and contests exclusive to the online experience.
OMC understands this is a difficult time for you. Making the choice to stay inside instead of potentially exposing yourself to coronavirus is an important but difficult choice to make. Of Moving Colors wants to do everything we can to ensure that you will have fun no matter which venue you choose.
Still unsure of which venue is best for you? Take our quick online quiz to help you make your decision.
Two Ways to Participate...
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, OMC wants to make sure our Byrde's Dancers Scholarship supporters are comfortable and excited about the upcoming luncheon. This year, Byrde's Dancers Scholarship Luncheon will host both a virtual and in-person venue experience. There is no change in ticket prices, speakers, or overall message of either event. However, exciting bonus prizes will be available to those guests who go the virtual route.
