Project Support

The in-person premier of Penelope’s Odyssey was originally slated for October 2020. We pushed the date to February 2021, but the tenacious pandemic caused us to shift the premier to this coming October. To meet that goal, we need to raise funds to rehire our dancers, finish the costumes, and arrange for music, video, lighting design and space rental. One additional highlight on our to-do list is the creation of “Penelope’s Home Video”, which will depict the life of Penelope and Odysseus before his departure for war and his unexpected multi-year absence. It is scheduled to be filmed on the island of Crete in August. Please help us make this possible.

23 Scholarships for Hartford Youth

Training Starts At An Early Age
To be successful in the field of dance, students must start at the early age of 7 and take 7-10 classes a week. The average cost to train per student per year is $7,500. For many families in our Hartford community, this is unattainable. Please consider donating to the 23 Scholarships Fund for our economically challenged youth.

​Building Community
We build a stronger community through dance. From the studio to the stage, parents helping behind the scenes, children on stage, friends and family in the seats.

How You Can Help!
Please contribute today to be part of this opportunity to better our community.
Every dollar matters, just as every student matters.

This initiative enables our Hartford youth to become future dancers, teachers and role models for our community.

Volunteer

Our behind the scenes volunteers and in-kind donations are crucial to the success of SPDC’s programming. From ushers for our in-side and out-side performances, organizing fundraising events, coordinating parent teams for our student showcases, picking up supplies or donating to our gala, every in-kind donation means the hard money can go towards our programming, paying our artists and serving our audiences near and far.

Support your own way

In-kind donations are another amazing way to support SPDC! Do you have items for a raffle basket? A houseboat someone could stay at for a week as part of our silent auction fundraiser? Can you donate cleaning supplies for the studio or paint a mural? The possibilities are as endless as your creativity and support our mission along the way.
