Out on a Limb Dance Theater Company and School: Bringing dance within everyone's reach, thanks to your support!


Since 2001, Out on a Limb Dance Theater Company and School has engaged the creativity and talents of dancers who share a common belief that dance is meant to entertain and touch the lives of audiences and dancers alike. We strive to bring dance within everyone’s reach through our community outreach efforts, offering dance education scholarships, producing dance theater productions throughout the year that are accessible to a wide range of audiences, and keeping our mission at the center of everything we do.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization, we simply couldn’t do what we do without the support of the community. By making a tax-deductible donation to Out on a Limb, you are ensuring we will continue to exist and make a difference.

Every year, Out on a Limb Dance Theater Company and School provides FREE performances for 1500-3000 school children who might otherwise not have the opportunity to be exposed to art and culture via dance theatre. We extend this special invitation to several metro area schools that demonstrate 75% or higher free/reduced lunch rates. Our goal is to provide any student inspired by our show an opportunity to train with us regardless of their family's ability to pay. The only way we able to accomplish this goal is through the incredible generosity of individuals like you!

In March 0f 2023 we will be presenting our annual outreach performance to metro area school children with our production of The Tails and Tales of Dr. Dolittle, featuring our company of professional dancers, alongside our amazing students. In order to expand our outreach, we will be offering to livestream the show for schools who have difficulty with busing expenses. The livestream option also allowed last year's production of Alice's Looking Glass to be viewed internationally as well as expanding our reach to various adult and adolescent care centers. 

In January of 2023 we are planning on a special "one night only" performance from our beautiful contemporary dance company, Branches, headed by choreographer, Mykala Micek, and we are seeking support for her amazing work!   

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation in any amount to allow us to continue helping students who rarely, if ever, are exposed to this inspiring art form.  From the depths of our hearts, and on behalf of thousands of hopeful children, we thank you!
