YOUR CONTRIBUTION MAKES YOUNG DANCE POSSIBLE
Young Dance is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, and your contribution is tax deductible. If your employer has a matching gift program, please consider using it to make your gift go twice as far.
Since 1987, Young Dance has encouraged youth in our community to build body and spirit through the creative art of dance. Our mission is to transform lives through movement. Each year, dancers in our classes, performing company, and community partnerships have an opportunity to collaborate with professional artists, pushing the boundaries of the art and practice of dance. Young Dance is an inclusive, artistic community where creativity flourishes.
Your donation helps keep our class fees low, assuring programming is accessible to all individuals, and provides scholarships so anyone can participate, regardless of ability to pay. Additionally, contributions support our Community Partnerships with schools, libraries, juvenile corrections, and community organizations.
