Make a Gift to Dance Project

Your contribution to supports the essential work we do every day, all year long. Every gift—large or small—has a vital impact on the artists, children and adults we serve; all of our programs are made possible in part with your generosity.

We are committed to creating a stronger community for dance in North Carolina, because we believe that communities are stronger because of dance. We believe that dance can be a means to health, creative thinking and self-expression, inspiration, cultural understanding, transformation, and just plain fun. In short, we believe that Dance is for Everyone! High quality dance performance and training should be widely available, not limited to dancers or audience members that can afford it or fit the stereotypical image of a classical dancer. Your support throughout the year helps us extend the joy of dance throughout North Carolina!
