Give to the Max 2023 is Nov. 16th!
This annual giving holiday is our largest fundraiser of the year. We could not continue to create and present vibrant concert dance inspiring connectedness and hope without the financial support of our individual donors.

We are looking to raise our operating budget of 30k to fully fund our upcoming season packed with vibrant jazz and modern dance aiming to connect communities and uplift the human spirit, and provide salaries for our artists who bring the work to life on stage!
