Our Dancers SOAR!
These beautiful dancers have been invited to perform in various theaters and festivals along the East Coast.
But we need your help!
Your donations to our SOAR Campaign will contribute to travel costs, costumes, and more so that these dancers can share their love of dance throughout this season.
Supporting Opportunities for Artists to Rise - means with your support,
Cora can ensure that every child - not just those of ample means - has an equal opportunity to dance. Your donation last season helped us acquire our home.
This season, your donation keeps kids SOARing inside.
Make a donation by January 1, 2019 and help us meet our $28,000 fall goal!
We have already raised $10,010. We have $17,990 to go!
Cora will offer $78,000 in scholarship support this year. Over 400 students study with us annually, nearly 90% attending for FREE or reduced tuition.

coming soon: The world premiere of gifts
gifts is the latest site-based work by choreographer Shannon Hummel. In the 20th anniversary season of her company Cora Dance, Hummel pushes the limits of confinement and imagination, sequestering dancers and audience in an intensely isolated location – undisclosed until performance – to paint a harsh world where value is defined by circumstance. gifts calls into question whether persistent belief in future rewards is worth pushing through and dismissing the accessible pleasures of the present moment. A journey of textures, tastes, sounds, smells, and images – real and imagined – gifts is a frank look at a world absent of sensuality whose possibilities for rejuvenation are available only in the imagination.
