Proceeds of the show benefit the Arts Mentorship Program that provides low income students the funds to dance at local studios and receive personal mentorship from a local professional, affordable rehearsal space to local artists, and supports five youth dance companies. Last year’s performance raised $3000 in scholarships for local studios.
Join Santa Barbara's favorite dance instructors who will be performing for to raise scholarship dollars for local studios. Faculty from Santa Barbara Dance Arts, Gustafson School of Dance, Timo Nunez Flamenco, SBCC Dance Club, and work from choreographer Robin Bisio will be featured in this incredible showcase of talent and love. From passionate flamenco, to raw contemporary, to high energy hip hop, Santa Barbara’s hottest teachers will light up the stage for a good cause.
Each teacher is donating his or her time to raise scholarship dollars for the Arts Mentorship Program (AMP) and the show is produced and anchored by the faculty at SB Dance Arts, under the direction of Steven Lovelace and Alana Tillim. Just last year AMP provided 100 youth with dance scholarships and serves over 1,200 local artists and youth.
State Street Ballet dancers Michael Waldrop and Angela Rubello have a beautiful pas de deux to raise funds for Gustafson School of Dance. Robin Bisios athletic trio entitled Silence and Slow Time and newcomers from the SBCC Dance Club will be dancing to raise scholarship for young adults training in dance while pursuing higher education. We are excited to have Timo Nunez offering a preview from his upcoming show at the Lobero called Pasion. Timo always delivers a sizzling performance and is eager to have his own work help his students who cannot afford lessons.
