Supporters' Corner

Each week DGNPC will highlight a supporter. This week we'd like to acknowledge Pure Vibe Dance Center at 102 Chestnut Avenue in Westmont. Pure Vibe's philosophy is that anyone who wants to learn to dance can with the right training and encouragement. Dance can be a part of anyone’s life; to what degree depends on the dancer's desire to learn and achieve their personal dance goals. For more information, go to https://purevibedance.com/ .
Our DGN speech team is looking for speech judges for our tournaments throughout the season. The commitment is on various Saturdays, typically 7:30am - 2 or 3pm, and pays $100 per day. If you are interested in helping judge this fall or winter, please contact Coach Gus Oakes at  aoakes@csd99.org .  The team is also looking for an assistant speech coach. The base requirement would be availability 2 days a week after school, and Saturdays to support tournaments, as well as a background on some level in competitive speech.
