Our Dance programs offer students a life-changing artistic experience. This is made possible in no small part by the tireless efforts of our fundraising committees. These parents, alumni, and others connected to Arts Umbrella Dance dedicate their time and talents to events and initiatives that bolster the financial sustainability of the Dance Company, ensuring more and more young dancers can achieve their artistic potential.
