April 26 marks Dance/USA’s 42nd birthday. Join us in celebrating the mission-driven, member-centered work of your nation’s dance service organization with a gift to Dance/USA. 

This year the funds raised now through April 26 support Dance/USA and one of its four Core Services – Archiving and Preservation, which provides essential resources, programs, and expertise to our members and the dance ecosystem at large.

Once again, Arts Insurance Program has generously provided Dance/USA with a $5,000 Day of Giving Challenge Grant. Help us meet their challenge by giving a gift today!

Together we can continue safeguarding and celebrating the rich dance legacies that exist across our nation. Thank you!  

Your gift today helps us reach our $10,000 goal by April 26. Any amount is appreciated.
