The Dancers Inc. Foundation supports educational programs and leadership opportunities to empower the next generation of dance leaders.
In 2006, Dancers Inc began a program to build leadership and recognize excellence in young dancers, hoping to esteem the next generation of leaders in the dance industry. Almost two decades later, those students - now professionals in the industry - return to raise money and increase access to opportunities for the next generation of dancer leaders.
The Foundation works, in collaboration with Dancers Inc, to support educational programs, recognition, and leadership opportunities to empower the next generation of dance leaders.
