At the beginning of the pandemic we partnered with several senior homes to bring the joy of dance to some of our community's most vulnerable members. In February, 2021, we created our virtual show "Stand By Me," which was inspired by true stories from senior citizens at Episcopal Homes of Minnesota. We are excited to continue our partnership with the residents of Episcopal Homes on future projects.
Our professional training program offers complimentary education and paid performance opportunities to eight aspiring dancers per year. To inquire about this program please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
