San Jose Dance Theatre Costumes Fund

Tax deductible
On January 6 San José Dance Theatre was shocked to find that their costume storage facility had been robbed.  Each costume is handmade and used in their annual performances of the Nutcracker and spring ballets.  For over 55 years San José Dance Theatre has been a vital contributor to the arts community in the Silicon Valley and this theft cuts the organization at their core.

As a professional and pre-professional company, San José Dance Theatre trains and promotes dancers ensuring that even their youngest performers have a professional experience as members of the Center for Performing Arts resident company.  As a non-profit, the costumes are designed, created, and maintained by their two volunteer costume directors and a support team of talented volunteers.  It will take all year to do the work needed to replace these stolen costumes and maintain the level of craftsmanship the company prides themselves on.  San José Dance Theatre needs your support to be able to begin this process and purchase the materials needed to begin this work.

San José Dance Theatre is a classical ballet performance company and academy, specializing in offering high-quality productions and training for the community. The company actively advocates for nationwide access to classical performances, quality community engagement opportunities, and the development of the art-form across the country. 

Since its inception in 1965, San José Dance Theatre has provided the community of San José and the greater San Francisco Bay area with quality performances. These performances feature professional artists, working in collaboration with young dancers to deliver outstanding productions. We have delighted local audiences for over five decades with performances including Peter and the Wolf, Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty, and Beauty and the Beast.
