We are excited to announce our newest fundraising events, Encore Evenings, taking place virtually thru zoom, on Monday evenings from 7-8pm!   Hosted by Dance Alive board members and fans, hosts may invite up to 20 or more guests to “attend” their event.  Any and all donations will be accepted during the Encore Evenings as we raise money to offset Covid!  They will continue throughout July and August, and possibly into the fall.   Each interactive event features two principal dancers and gives attendees the opportunity to ask the dancers questions and get to know them! Videos of the dancers will be shown during the event as well as showcasing the entire company. These events are a Happy Hour with a purpose! If you would like to be included or host an event let us know!


The broader goal of the Encore Society is to find patrons who wish to make a three-year commitment that will build a base of financial support the company can count on.  Contributions start at the Arabesque level ($2,000 a year for 3 years), the “Pirouette” ($5,000 a year), and the Grand Jete at $10,000 a year. Dance Alive has a 50+ year history of contributing to the cultural landscape of North Central Florida and we want to help them thrive as they are poised to move into the future. Please look at the patron  benefits listed  under DONATE on the website, Encore Society.
