1. About Parish House Dance

Parish House Dance is operated as a non-profit fund-raising operation by Pastor Erwin Roux (aka 'PR') and his wife Beth, at the Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Turbotville, Pennsysvania.

All funds raised are donated to the ELCA World Hunger Appeal. Since dance lessons began about 1998, approximately $30,000 has been raised and donated to the World Hunger Appeal.

As PR might say,

"Here's the deal . . . we'll either teach you to dance, or eliminate world hunger, whichever happens first".
