Dance is a joyful, transforming experience for students of all ages, abilities, and circumstances. The Dance Foundation, a non-profit organization founded in 1975, embodies this belief with programs that reach far and wide in the Birmingham community.
The Community In Motion program is at the heart of The Dance Foundation’s mission, with classes for students throughout Birmingham at dozens of schools and social service agencies such as the YWCA, Washington Elementary, The Bell Center and many others. Through this program, the extraordinary teaching staff uses dance to build coordination and motor skills, inspire creativity and curiosity, and enhance academic learning.
The Studio Use Program provides a home for independent dance artists and dance troupes like Sanspointe Dance Company and Dance Without Limits who need studio space to hold their classes, workshops and rehearsals. The 100-seat theatre located inside their facility features a large screen and projector and is an affordable space for performances, meetings and small events.
The Dance Foundation is located in Downtown Homewood and offers dance classes for more than 500 students ages 1 to adult in a variety of dance styles including creative movement, ballet, jazz, modern, hip hop, tap and musical theatre with live piano music as an essential and unique element for most classes.
The Dance Foundation’s summer camps and weekly classes run June 5-August 5; online registration is open.
