Torrington >> Torrington Savings Bank has announced its contribution to The Nutmeg Ballet Conservatory in the amount of $10,000. The donation is part of an ongoing capital campaign to fund the replacement of the essential dance flooring in Nutmeg’s historical downtown building, which will come to a total cost of approximately $88,000.
Sharon E. Dante, Founding Executive Director of The Nutmeg Ballet Conservatory explains, “Thousands of dancers who have trained at our studios over the last 16 years have left their marks, literally, on our floors and it has become a safety issue. The new floors will allow us to continue to offer high-quality training programs and bring people from all over the world to downtown Torrington. We at Nutmeg are so grateful for the ongoing help from TSB and others who value having an international organization such as the Nutmeg Ballet in our downtown cultural community.”
Torrington Savings Bank contribution is supplemented by the Northwest Connecticut Community Foundation’s grant of $37,500 procured by The Nutmeg Conservatory. Individual donors, alumnus, and parents have contributed to the project as well.
John E. Janco, President & CEO of Torrington Savings Bank said, “The Nutmeg Conservatory is a Torrington institution. We know this donation will be a solid start to their campaign in an effort to raise the necessary funds for a new floor for the Conservatory. I am confident other local businesses will follow our lead and give generously towards this cause.”
The mission of The Nutmeg Ballet Conservatory is to provide professional-level training, education and performance experience in classical ballet and other dance forms for young students dedicated to the art of dance. Learn more at nutmegconservatory.org
