HELP CORA KEEP DANCE OPEN TO EVERYONE. DONATE TODAY.

At Cora Dance and Cora School for Dance, no one is ever turned away for financial reasons. All of our classes and performances are supported by a pay-what-you-can rolling system. But we cannot support our amazing students, teachers, dancers, performance and studio spaces without your generous help.

WE ARE CORA. PLEASE: JOIN US.

PAY FOR A CORA STUDENT'S DANCEWEAR: $40 Cora School for Dance provides dancewear for all students who need it. No one is ever turned away for financial reasons. Cora Dance is now partnering with Eurotard and Capezio to issue uniform dancewear to all students. While Cora has always provided dancewear to those in need - most gently used - providing new uniform attire and shoes not only visually “levels the playing field” in the classroom, but also enables teachers to provide a higher level of training, creates safer classrooms and encourages a sense of pride among students in both their attire and their dancing bodies. Please support a student's dancewear today!

At the end of every school year, students from across all classes and youth companies at Cora School for Dance perform in this spectacular concert: a triumphant culmination of all they have learned, practiced, mastered. A Red Hook tradition, our student concert draws families, friends, neighbors and more from all corners for an evening of dance, expression, and sheer inspiration. 

Your support of this creative collaborative performance supports every aspect of Cora Dance's work and mission. It pays for our students' costumes; concert production costs; professional stage management; tickets for those who would not otherwise be able to afford to attend; childcare for younger children, enabling parents with no outside babysitting to witness the performances of Cora students, without distraction. For many, the Cora student concert is a major highlight in the lives of their families, friends and of the neighborhood itself. 

By sponsoring this vital performance, you actively encourage and support the whole Cora community's year of hard work, dedication, sacrifice, and constant learning--as well as all our collective commitment to keeping vibrant arts education and performance accessible to all, no matter what.

Please sponsor the Cora School for Dance student concert today!
