Student Matinees are back at The Cowles Center! During matinees, students are encouraged to be active participants and are invited to question dance, engage their curiosity, envision themselves as artists, and move their bodies from their seats or on the stage. 

The Cowles Center is grateful for its community of dance artists, students, and enthusiasts! Without you, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do:  program, partner, educate, and support the joy and artistry of dance and performance art. Our donors make this possible. Thank you!

  • $50 provides each student and educator with a study guide to learn about the performance and gain access to fun dance tools to use in the classroom.
  • $75 gives one classroom a full student matinee experience.
  • $100 provides a school with a bus subsidy and the ability to engage with The Cowles Center in person. 

We are incredibly thankful to our vibrant community of dance artists, students, and enthusiasts who continue to support our journey of being a hub for dance by presenting, partnering with, educating, and strengthening the joy and artistry of dance.
