World Down Syndrome Day is this month and we are taking this opportunity to raise funds for a local Ottawa charity called Dragonfly! Dragonfly is non-profit organization that works exclusively with children with Down Syndrome.

DragonFly is delivered in English and French in The School of Dance, New Edinburgh Campus.
Your support will help kids with DS in our community access the Dragonfly program!
