Ridgefield Conservatory Dancer Earns Eagle Scout Rank, Thanks Dance Studio for Fostering his Creativity

Ethan Beaulac's Eagle Scout project has proved essential for dance students and teachers during COVID-19

A big congratulations to Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance student Ethan Beaulac who earned his Eagle Scout Honor award this week!

Achieving the rank of Eagle Scout is no small feat and Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance (RCD) dancer Ethan Beaulac, a long-time Boy Scout of the Scatacook Yankee Council, looked no further than the nonprofit dance studio to partake in a project worthy of the esteemed rank. 

Ethan built benches, complete with cubby storage units for the nonprofit dance studio. Ethan’s design has helped Ridgefield Conservatory adhere to CDC guidelines during the pandemic. This week, he earned what he worked so hard to achieve, he was named an Eagle Scout. 

"When it was time for my Eagle Scout project, I knew I wanted it to be for the Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance. I wanted to give back to this amazing community that helped foster my creativity and I have been fortunate to be a part of for many years," Ethan said.

RCD Executive Director Amy Piantaggini, who was by Ethan's side when he received his esteemed badge said, "We are grateful to Ethan for his efforts and dedication to RCD through his Eagle Scout project, which provided crucial safe storage management for students during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Dance on, Ethan!"

RCD Chairman of the Board Mr. Howard Turner, also founding Chairman of Ridgefield Academy, who holds the status of Eagle Scout himself remarked, “From one Eagle Scout to another, thank you, Ethan, for making your Eagle Scout project something so valuable and helpful to RCD where you’ve been such an active, long-term member of our community. Being an Eagle Scout epitomizes service to others — congratulations on your commitment and achievement!”
