A very sincere Thank You
for the kindness of those who were not strangers when I needed their help. Your generosity will not be forgotten.

Soupy, Packy, MsNan, Katie -- you are angels.


Although this site has been totally FREE to visitors since 1999, it costs me money to keep it afloat.

I need your help!

Its humbling to beg, but I'm drowning in a sea of red ink, so I'm begging you -- if you have enjoyed visiting either of my websites -- VanceHolmes.com or TheatreDance.com -- please help me keep them on the world wide stage.

A one time donation of any amount would be helpful. $10, $25, $50, or at this point even a $5.00 gift would be forever appreciated!

My web pages are hosted by DREAMHOST which has a program that will automatically apply your
PAYPAL donation directly to my account.

I humbly THANK YOU for your generous donation.
