DONATION BASED CLASSES & HOW THEY WORK (please acknowledge this information)

Since 2003 our donation-based model has aimed to make a variety of dance, voice and acting classes more accessible both financially and socially for all seeking to train in San Diego.

We’ve been able to sustain our donation-based program by partnering with talented teaching artist, our student base and community member seeking to support arts & education initiatives. Our donation-based model allows students in a position to contribute the suggested donation to do so and for others to give what they can. Like all other services – if we have met or exceeded your expectations we encourage you to show your appreciation with the suggested donation.

To help us maintain a quality product we’ve implemented guidelines for giving. These guidelines help us meet or exceed the cost of operation and better serve you.

Because our barres and floors need to be transported to and from we’re asking for a little more to participate in these classes.

We’d like to suggest:

Single class $19

Purchase 4 or more classes $15
