WHY YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS
In order to further our mission, DFF accepts tax-deductible contributions from corporations, patrons, supporters, and dance fans, and raises additional funds to support the work of the foundation.
Why is dance important?
- Dancing is proven to lower stress, increase happiness, and increase mental health
- Students develop skills, strategies, and knowledge in theatre and dance access cognitive, personal, and social domains that help them become more literate human beings.
- Dancing is proven to produce higher self-esteem and a more positive outlook on life
- Defined and specific movement activities in dance can positively impact early reading skills and language arts skills
- When the arts are a major part of the school experience, students’ attendance rates rise dramatically
- Dancing can stimulate the mind and ward off alzheimer’s, dementia, and keeps the brain active at all ages
- Kinesthetic activities assists learners in overcoming problems with processing information
- Dance can impact and even facilitate learning in other subject areas such as math, reading, science, and social studies
- Dance activities provide deeper comprehension and more visible engagement in the learning process itself
- Dancing is the only form of physical activity to offer protection against dementia
Every $50 donation funds one student’s dance education for one year. Your support will help us achieve our goal and allow more students the beautiful gift of dance.

GENTLY USED DANCEWEAR AND/OR SHOES
At this moment, DFF is not in a position to accept and distribute in-kind donations of shoes or dancewear.
We have received many requests around this type of donation and we are exploring possibilities for how DFF could facilitate this in the future. In the meantime, you might consider donating your items to a local dance studio or community organization that provides dance classes to students who would benefit from gently used dancewear.
