Smith Dance Academy raises $2,800 for Hartland child battling health issues

The young dancers of Smith’s Dance Academy care about dancing, but they care about many things, including those in their community who need support.

On Friday, Dec. 8, Smith Dance Academy took to the stage at McCain Community Theatre at Woodstock High School as part of the SDA Cares Performance Fundraiser.

In addition to showcasing their skills on stage and invoking the holiday spirit, the young dancers raised more than $2,800 to help support a five-year-old Hartland boy’s battle with brain tumours.

The academy directed donations collected as admission to the dance recital to the medical care of Albert, the son of Ben and Alyssa Wiseman.

Smith Dance Academy Director Amanda Boone said the funds would help the family’s travel and other costs as Albert continues treatment at the IWK Children’s Hospital in Halifax.
