What if you could help us win $10,000 just by giving 50 bucks? On November 16, Give to the Max Day, you can.

Last year, more than 42,000 donors logged on to and gave over $10 million to Minnesota charities in 24 hours during Give to the Max Day.

  • The ARENA Dance Residency program at Twin Cities schools: Janczewski and the ARENA company go into residency for the entire school day for a full week at 1-3 schools. ARENA works with students to create their own dance which is performed for their school and in an ARENA FREE Friday matinee concert. With this program, ARENA provides an easy and enormously fun way for students to learn the history, mathematics and geology of dance, though classroom instruction, physical experience, and observation of a professional company at work.
  • Provide access for students to attend ARENA concerts at FREE FRIDAY matinees. We will also provide busing for the students.
  • INstinct Intensives: Janczewski and the ARENA company members teach a 1-week intensive in January and a 2-week intensive workshop in June for college students, adults and young professional dancers.
