This is who we are at The Lake Tahoe Dance Collective. We bring world class dance from all walks of life to our community in order to educate our students and audience. Diversity is an integral part of our history, culture, and identity. Inclusion is the way we welcome and embrace all differences. We aim to create an inclusive culture across our entire organization where all forms of diversity are valued and given an authentic sense of belonging.
At Lake Tahoe Dance Collective, we are committed to being open and equal to our community so that performances and programs can be accessible in a safe, supported and welcoming space. The result? Comprehensive growth, development and compassion.
Dance is a completely universal human experience that transcends time, language and culture. It is also an expression of human emotion, conveyed through the moving body. Every dancer or audience member, regardless of background, can feel this celebration in their heart and soul.
We believe dance is a human right that we are fostering, facilitating and offering to all students, audience members and artists.
