Dear Friend,

This month I would like to share a compelling snapshot of our organization's accomplishments and impact over the last year. Our incredible staff, dancers, and faculty reached over 10,000 individuals last season. We compensated 48 artists. We offered over 900 hours of instruction at our dance school. Together, we are bringing our mission to life and illuminating the power of dance. As we venture into our 2023-2024 Season with our new Artistic Director, Christopher K. Morgan taking the helm in 2024, this is a unique opportunity for us to celebrate where we have been, where we are, and where we are going. I look forward to seeing you at an event, performance, or class this Season!

Molly Puryear, Executive Director
