Help us bring 500 high school students to see our Annual Performance in January!

About the Project

Imagine 500 student dance critics giving feedback to professional choreographers about their work prior to it being seen by general audiences..."Introducing the Next Generation..."

Each year, Dance Canvas brings 500 students from metro Atlanta High Schools to the Rialto Center for the Arts to be our very 1st audiences for our Annual Performance Series. These students are challenged to participate in dance critique exercises, including our nationally recognized "Tweet Critique" program, which has students interact socially with our performance, performers and choreographers.

We need your help to continue to build this program! Your donation will help to subsidize the discounted tickets for students to attend. Your donations go toward tech and theater rental costs to produce the high school performance during the day! Your donation will also go toward compensating our beautiful dance artists who bring the show to life!! 

This exciting experience has resulted in wonderful critiques from our student audiences:
"Greyscale demonstrates a powerful theme in the shift of power between the genders within history..."
-Nieya Amezquita

"The flow of the costumes and the musicality of the harp demonstrated the effortlessness that I believe is hard to achieve in ballet"
-Claire
