Community Programs

Whether we are performing in a gym, reaching young minds in a library, or bringing dance to seniors with limited mobility, our programs are accessible, year-round and affordable. Our Community Engagement programs are also supported by Charles D. Ortgiesen Foundation, Einhorn Family Foundation, and Gene and Ruth Posner Foundation.
