(This amendment provides $110,000 the first year from the general fund to the Roanoke Ballet Theatre, Inc. A portion of the requested funds would be used for capital improvements, to pay down debt associated with moving, to increase student enrollment, and to increase scholarships. The funding will also be used to pay for advertisement of the new classes and performances, including Scottish, Middle Eastern, Salsa, Merengue, Tango, and Flamenco. The remaining funds will be used to provide supplies for a wider range of classes, develop a multicultural experience for the students and the community, offer performance and classes of traditional dances from other countries, increase audience, obtain benefits for employees, and pay for the scholarship recipients' tuition.)
