Friends of Dance

The Department of Dance at Case Western Reserve University is proud to be supported by Friends of Dance, an organization founded in the late 1970s to enhance and support the department’s work. Members of Friends of Dance foster support for the department through fundraising, education and special events. 

Through financial assistance and, importantly, contributions of time, energy and talent, this distinguished and devoted organization augments support for artistic endeavors and a wide range of educational pursuits for the emerging artists within the dance department. 

Your contribution enables us to:

  • Bring in guest artists to work with our students
  • Purchase special items for classes and lighting equipment for productions
  • Support student travel to dance conferences, dance intensives and workshops
  • Host special events for our students, alumni, and audiences
