Dance Alliance Asks for Funds

The Santa Barbara Dance Alliance (SBDA) needs $15,000 before the end of the year. If it can’t get it, the organization risks losing its downtown offices at the Arts and Culture Center. According to its website, SBDA is “facing a very real financial crunch” and “your very much-needed donation will fund programs unique to SBDA including: Youth Scholarships, Umbrella membership for 25 smaller organizations, community master classes, and multiple performance opportunities.” The Dance Alliance has been part of the area scene for 34 years. In that time, it has also brought choreographers to Santa Barbara to perform, as well as teach classes. The group also mentors teens with On the Verge, an annual workshop for young choreographers that culminates in a live performance.
