Beverly Miller Dance Scholarship
Beverly Miller and her husband Norman, dedicated their adult lives to making Costume Gallery a household name while serving the dance community for almost 50 years. Bev loved Costume Gallery, and was inspired by the wonderful dancers and teachers she met. She passed away in 1999 after battling breast cancer.
It is very special to her family and colleagues that Beverly’s memory lives on and that she be associated with giving young dancers a helping hand.
Beverly knew firsthand the personal and social values gained by participating in dance programs. As an investment in the future of dance, Costume Gallery has established the Beverly Miller Dance Scholarships, to help young people pursue their dance education.
