Make a lasting impact on the lives of Artists 

All artists need their patrons. Your investment is essential. It makes the statement that you believe that Art is important and that it makes a difference in your life. A vibrant city is identified as such by its thriving community of artists that entertain, inform and inspire through their various art forms.

If we recognize that artists enliven cities, then we must not accept the fact that dancers earn an average salary of $18,000 per year.  The many years of dedication required to develop and maintain their skills is comparable to other professionals such as doctors, lawyers and engineers, and should be justly recognized via commensurate wages. Like other fairly paid professionals, dancers take physical risks on a daily basis however they have little or no job security, as most are self-employed. 

By giving generously you will be joining us in solidarity with the artists whose passion in making Art enlivens, entertains and enrichs our lives.

All donations of $25 and above will be acknowledged with a receipt for income tax purposes.
