Art with Heart warmed hearts with their check presentation

Art with Heart, a dance concert benefiting Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City, features nationally acclaimed dancers ages 4–18. Dance studios Dance Impressions in Bountiful, Utah, The Dance Club in Orem, Utah and The Winner School in Salt Lake City, Utah, started the Art with Heart joint fundraiser in 2002. “Each year, these performers dance with their hearts to help raise funds for the hospital,” said Kevin Martin, hospital administrator. “There is so much talent with these dancers that it is truly awe-inspiring.”

Equally as impressive is their generosity. In 2019, an incredible $68,175 was raised. Bringing the Art with Heart total in 17 years to $743,000. The tremendous support of these dancers and the community that supports them helps Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City continue to provide specialized care to children with orthopaedic conditions, regardless of the families’ ability to pay. Over 5,000 children each year from the western United States and Mexico come to the Salt Lake City Shriners Hospital to receive treatment.

Art with Heart made the decision to specifically raise funds for the teen amputee camps, called the Un-Limb-ited Camps. The Un-Limb-ited camps are for teenage patients of Shriners Hospitals for Children living with limb loss or deficiency. These camps offer a unique opportunity for teens to gain confidence and form strong bonds with other amputees while learning either adaptive skiing and snowboarding, or whitewater river rafting and camping in the Utah wilderness. Shriners Hospitals for Children seeks to help its patients reach their full potential beyond treating their orthopaedic conditions, by helping patients adjust to their current disability through skills training and recreational and therapeutic activities.

Nathan Clark, director of development at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Salt Lake City expressed his gratitude to the group of dancers and their dedication to the hospital. “On behalf of everyone at the Salt Lake City Shriners Hospital,” said Nathan, “a heartfelt thank you to all of the dancers, parents and staff at The Dance Club, Dance Impressions and The Winner School!” Learn more about Art with Heart and the annual dance performance benefiting the hospital.
