Through this fundraiser, we hope to

1- Regularly offer 2-6 donation-based classes/month , allowing everyone who wants to to dance with Dance for All Bodies regardless of ability to pay. Since inception, keeping programming free of cost has been a priority, as DfAB recognizes the disproportionate financial strain on those with disabilities.

2- Competitively compensate our dance instructors, ASL interpreters and executive leadership. By contributing to Dance for All Bodies programming, you are supporting the continued free expression and meaningful representation of those with disabilities in dance.
