Since opening TU Dance Center in 2010, our youth programming has steadily expanded to meet the needs of more and more remarkable and talented young dancers. We are pleased to announce a 2,000 square foot expansion project which is underway upstairs from our current studio, opening in late June. The expansion will include a new dance studio, TU Dance Center Studio 2, as well as new restroom facilities and administrative space.
Construction costs are supported with gifts from generous foundations, but we need your help to purchase dance and music equipment for our growing program. Click here to watch TU Dance students talk about the campaign on our Indiegogo site, and consider your own gift through Indiegogo to help purchase ballet barres, piano & drums, a sound system, and a new sprung floor for Studio 2. Through generous program support from Local Initiative Support Corporation, every dollar of this one-month fund drive goes directly to the purchase of musical instruments and dance equipment for TU Dance Center.
Studio 2 construction is made possbile by grants from The McKnight Foundation, Mardag Foundation, F.R. Bigelow Foundation, the City of St. Paul Cultural STAR program, and the Central Corridor Funders Collaborative; and with project support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC).
