The Coronavirus has already had a devastating economic impact on America’s arts and culture sector—some reports indicate that financial losses to date are estimated to be $3.2 billion. Dance companies and other arts organizations have responded to calls from health and elected officials and have canceled performances across the country.

If you would like to make a donation to Dogtown during this difficult time, we would greatly appreciate it.
We will make it through this, we are a strong community. I hope you are all practicing smart social distancing and staying safe.
Some our full time artist, choreographers will be doing live online classes.
For any questions about donating to the theatre, please contact Executive Director, Jess Burgess.
