Did you know The Dance Cooperative offers scholarships? 

As part of our mission, the Dance Cooperative will not refuse anyone the opportunity to dance if they cannot pay tuition. If you or someone you know wants to take dance classes and needs financial support, email dancecooperative@gmail.comto find out how to apply for scholarship and register for classes.

How can you HELP?

The pandemic has affected the arts in significant ways. Perhaps most importantly, children all over the country missed out on after school activities, including arts education programs like dance classes. Scientists have reported the significant social and emotional benefits of arts education and physical activities and the positive impact on child brain development.

Many of our studio families are on some form of scholarship and also have faced additional financial stresses due to the pandemic.
