We need dance now more than ever… and dance teachers need us!

About the Project

COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on America’s nonprofit arts sector. On March 13th, it forced the temporary closure of CityDance's Montgomery County dance programming at the CityDance School and Conservatory through March 30th, and possibly for the remainder of the spring session. This means 122 canceled classes EACH WEEK serving 700 students taught by 27 teachers. However, we have made a commitment to pay 100% of teaching fees during the scheduled March closure, despite tuition income falling off dramatically.

It is our goal to continue to support our teaching faculty who are not able to engage in their regular work until this crisis is over, enabling us to retain our world-class teachers and students for the future. We are working to transition all of our studio programs and pre-professional training to virtual classrooms in the coming days. This will provide opportunities our teaching faculty to engage with their students and ensure continuity in each child’s dance education. Our teaching faculty are pillars in the lives of each of our students, and minimizing disruption to this relationship will promote stability in this turbulent time. 

We are asking our community to help us support the livelihoods of our faculty during this challenging time. Your gift will directly support this goal.
