How Your Sponsorship Helps

Outreach Programs

We believe that dance should not be confined to a studio or theater but should go outside the traditional walls to open up dance empowerment in unconventional spaces to include true inclusion and diversity for all.

Crested Butte Dance Collective

School of Dance values adults in dance!  Sponsorships will support teacher education, aerial program development, and adult scholarship programs.  These funds support local events such as Vinotok, CBDC Fall Show, and Move the Butte.

Guest Artists

We hire guest artists for master classes and workshops to offer enrichment and comprehensive learning opportunities for our teachers, students, and community.

Scholarship Program

We provide scholarships to local families and students who require and request assistance.

Inclusive Programming

Your sponsorship will help CBSOD pursue inclusivity on a valley-wide and then state-wide spectrum.

State of the Art Performances

CBSOD and longtime community partner Center for the Arts offer professional-level dance performances that bring the entire community together each year.  Your sponsorship helps provide access to state-of-the-art shows in our rural mountain town so that we can say, “Come for the snow; stay for the show!”
