Covid 19 Crisis Support

The dancers in our school and two companies are devastated by the cancellation of their classes and performances and also by the extreme separation from their peer group. In this group are potential star performers, creators of new choreography and thinkers who will guide us to build an enlightened planet with a humanitarian ethos. These students are our hope for the future.  As their mentors we must be ready to meet this challenge and inspire them in our space as soon as it is safe.  Please help us build a strong future for them and the performing arts in Santa Barbara.
