UNITING CENTRAL OHIO THROUGH THE ART OF DANCE
FOR ALL OF US
Dance Unite is a unique non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that works to promote diversity and build unity through dance in central Ohio. Over the past few months, the arts have suffered immensely due to Covid-19. Dance instructors have been unable to work and support themselves and their families. Students have been unable to train, and even as studios reopen, many will no longer have the resources to take lessons. Tax-exempt contributions to our scholarship fund made by individuals and caring businesses will allow us to serve many artists in our community. Through fundraising and donations, underpriveleged communities and special needs individuals will experience growth, connection, and empowerment through the art of dance.
