“No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up and NEVER give up!”

Carol Elaine Williams Sykes

Carol Elaine Williams Sykes was a longtime supporter of the arts and a Founding Member of Deeply Rooted Dance Theater’s Board of Directors. Her favorite motto, “No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up, and never give up!” made her a driving force in the development of the company. We celebrate Carol’s life by providing financial support to talented dancers pursuing professional careers in the arts. The Carol Sykes Dance Education Scholarship Fund provides scholarship assistance to qualified students within Deeply Rooted’s Apprentice, Summer Intensive, and Pre-Professional program.

Your generosity makes Carol’s vision to support the next generation of dancers possible. We invite you to contribute to the Carol Sykes Dance Education Scholarship Fund today!
