The Ballard High School Foundation Golf Classic's Dessert Dash is going virtual. We need Performing Arts families to provide desserts for the "Celebrate All Things Ballard" online auction held August 16 to 23. It is a great chance to show off your new quarantine baking skills.
Here's how you can help:
Provide Dessert: If you would like to provide a dessert, please sign up.
From August 16 to 23, bidders can snag treats from A la Mode Pies, Rosellini's Bakery, and from the concoctions of our talented home bakers, and have them delivered directly to their homes. 100% of Dessert Dash proceeds go to Ballard Performing Arts groups.
Directors and students look forward to the Music Camps every fall. We are currently planning them in some capacity in September.
While it is unlikely that we will be able to travel to our camps and stay overnight, we are instead planning to hold them at school during the day on those same weekends. While the location is not the same as last year, the directors will teach and share their knowledge and make music just as before. All of the learning, bonding, and fun that happens will still happen in new ways. We are working out the details and will be communicating updates and changes through our usual communication channels.
Band Camp: September 11th - 13th
Orchestra Camp: September 18th - 20th
Choir Camp: September 25th - 27th
Auditions for groups happen in the spring for the following school year. Contact the Director for additional information.
