Student concert productions at The Dance Center are free and open to the public, though audience members are encouraged to make a small and voluntary donation of $5.00 in lieu of a ticket payment. All monetary contributions collected during these student concerts are dedicated to this Scholarship Fund, and we are very grateful for this support from our patrons.

Patrons who chose to make additional contributions to the Scholarship Fund of $50 or more will receive the benefits of a Friend of The Dance Center  and be recognized as a Donor in all Dance Center performance programs. Please consider increasing your donation or donate online now to support our dance students continue their education, developing their skills and personal voice, and maturity as dance artists.
