Season Donors & Sponsors

We are deeply grateful to our donors, whose generosity helps SDW realize its mission to inspire people of all abilities, social backgrounds, cultures, and generations with the transformative power of dance. Thank you for helping us work tirelessly toward a more equitable dance-theatre community and world. On behalf of everyone at ShaLeigh Dance Works, we are so thankful for the part you play in making this happen.

We could not accomplish our goals without the support, involvement, and enthusiasm of these committed supporters!
