Our Members, Our Soul
The many individuals involved with our company are the basis of everything we have accomplished and will continue to accomplish at Community-Minded Dance. We wouldn’t be where we are without everyone’s generous contributions and hard work.
Thank you to our fans, staff, instructors, volunteers, administration, and hired talent for making us everything we are today.
