About this project

We want EVERYONE to be able to enjoy live dance performances. To this end we are making all tickets just $5! 

We need YOUR help to make it possible to keep ticket prices so low. Every dollar you donate will go to performance expenses such as theater rental, costumes, programs, and personnel. We will be performing in more than one theater to be able to reach as many people as possible, so your donation is VERY important (AND tax deductible)!

The following is more information on our nonprofit company's mission:

The mission of HustedDance is two-fold: 1.) offer students of dance a professional experience and 2.) create greater awareness of arts culture by providing high quality, low-cost dance arts performances in multiple locations and communities. 

Our vision is to bring dance to the community at large to create greater audiences for dance and related arts.  HustedDance believes that most dance, theater, and other cultural arts performances are often cost prohibitive and geographically inconvenient to family homes.

HustedDance will endeavor to provide affordable, quality dance performances in the neighborhoods where people live in order to increase awareness and enjoyment of live arts experiences. It is our hope that this awareness will expand the community of people interested in dance and related arts.

We believe all people should have the opportunity to experience the highest quality in live art regardless of income or location.    

The goal of HustedDance is to offer exceptional students of dance a professional company experience.  

This program will expand the student’s education into a real world setting where they can experience first hand what the performing arts industry will require of them to be successful in their careers.  HustedDance provides a safe environment where emerging young artists can not only gain professional experience and hone their technical skills, but also gain insight into the business and political aspects of the performing arts industry and learn how to avoid or rectify mistakes which could jeopardize a career in the real world.
