Give the Gift of Dance

The Chance to Dance fund was established in 2008 by DCE senior Mia Weinberger as a way to provide financial support for dance students in need. We never want a family’s financial status to stand in the way of a child’s dance education. 

Please consider supporting this fund and help continue bringing the joy of dance to young people in our community. You can donate here or indicate your donation in the Chance to Dance box on your registration form.

Since 2008, Chance to Dance has helped over 200 kids to take pre-professional, recreational, and introductory movement classes at DCE.
