There is always room for you on the dance floor at The Dance Complex.
With this year-end appeal, we hope to break prior records by engaging everyone who calls The Dance Complex home - to give.
We reveal ourselves to the world as a healthy non-profit organization when supported by a large base of our patrons.
That is the theme of our 2016 appeal — participation, engagement and action. We invite you to invest in the transformative value of The Dance Complex.
Help us exceed previous giving levels through 25% or more patron participation in 2016.
