Through our DANCE CO outreach program we provide ballet instruction to over 50 underserved children each year. We bring their families to see our full-length ballets free of charge. This program is made possible through a collaboration with Kingsport’s Boys and Girls Club.
Thanks to the support of the City of Kingsport, the Tennessee Arts Commission’s Funds for at Risk Youth, the East Tennessee Foundation’s Arts Fund, the Massengill De-Friece Foundation and the generous support of individuals in the community, we are able to meet about one-third of the cost of our outreach program. The rest is up to us.
DANCE CO stands for Developing Artists and Nurturinig Cultural Education through Community Outreach.
