Our mission is to teach the art of dance to all, inspiring creativity and confidence.
You can hear it echoing through the building as you walk down the hallway - music, laughter, stomping feet. Everyone here knows its dance day with The Dance Foundation, a special day each week when each child gets to shine! As you enter the room you see them, children who this morning awoke in a homeless shelter with dozens of other families, children who needed help taking their first steps out of bed to reach their walker. With The Dance Foundation those children are jumping, marching, dancing. They join in the story, explore ideas, gain confidence, and learn about their world. Every child participates, all abilities, boys and girls together.
Our Community Partnership Program brings skill-building dance classes to more than 1,100 children each week at 25 preschools, elementary schools and social service agencies across Birmingham. This is at the core of what we do. And we need your support to do it.
The Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to more than 20 students each year in our Studio Program. This program allows deserving children the opportunity to explore music and dance through weekly studio classes.
The Dance Foundation is a non-profit organization supported by our community. Your thoughtful donation will help more children be inspired and shine through dance. Your gift matters -- please donate today.
