Dance raises nearly $100,000 for Harford arts center

December 12, 2009

A gala that drew nearly 300 guests raised almost $100,000 toward a proposed Harford County Center for the Arts. In a takeoff on a popular TV competition, the second annual Dancing for the Arts last month at Bulle Rock in Havre de Grace paired experienced dance instructors and studio owners with local officials and business leaders, many of them unpracticed in tangos, waltzes and fox trots. Organized four years ago to build a home for the arts, the nonprofit Center for the Arts group is searching for a location with about 22 acres and is raising construction money. Preliminary estimates say it will cost about $52 million, excluding land and site development, to construct the facility.
