You Keep Us Strong!

COVID-19 has impacted all of us. We ask that you consider making a gift to lift us up through our Relief and Recovery Fund. We met our initial goal of $1,000,000, which helped us manage our obligations and keep the dancers paid through last season. We are now facing new challenges and have an additional goal of $1,000,000 to continue providing necessary resources for the current season.

Your gift now will help lift us up and prepare for the time when we can welcome you back home for performances at the Kauffman Center and classes and programs at the Bolender Center.
