He took the high road — and now the young dancers of Dancewave in Park Slope are closer to their dream of performing in Scotland.
Nick Kotsonis, owner of the S Club fitness center on Union Street, came through with a $10,000 donation to underwrite the troupe’s July trip to an international youth festival in Aberdeen after a travel agent scammed the company out of $10,000 last year.
He presented the check at the Fourth Avenue dance center last Wednesday — and now Dancewave has half the money it needs.
“I feel very heartened that the community has come forward to help us,” said Diane Jacobowitz, the troupe’s executive director.
That said, about $20,000 still needs to be raised. Before the travel agency scam, the dancers raised their own money, hosting bake sales and setting up a baby-sitting service to pay their own way to the festival, where they will be the only American troupe performing.
