Dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov and Baryshnikov Bodywear, a licensed division of the Weekend Exercise Co., said this week they will give an annual endowment of $50,000 to American dance schools whose educational programs have been affected by budget cuts.

On Monday, Baryshnikov and Norm Zwail, president of Weekend Exercise, presented $10,000 checks to Charmaine Jefferson, the executive director of the Dance Theatre of Harlem, and Eliot Feld, choreographer and director of the Feld's Ballet School.
