Mission Statement

Our mission is to support and promote a premiere dance arts program and an appreciation of the arts, in cooperation with the San Diego Park and Recreation Department Dance Arts Program. San Diego Civic Dance Association is a non-profit, all volunteer, public benefit organization. Every year, our dedicated volunteers give over 25,000 hours of their time to support the many programs of the City of San Diego's Civic Dance Arts program. While the City fee covers the cost of the dance classes, each year our hardworking volunteers work to raise over $150,000 to cover the costs of our performances and additional programs. San Diego Civic Dance Association funds and produces performance opportunities for dancers taking classes with the City program. From Recitals, Collage, December Nights, Dance Fair and many more, our pledge is to provide a complete education and performance experience for our dance community. In addition to performance opportunities, SDCDA funds financial aid, merit scholarships, college scholarships, costume assistance as well as specialty dance training opportunities for both dancer and teachers alike. Our pledge is to build and maintain a strong dance program that supports all of our students and teachers, no matter their age or ability level.

Overview

Self-reported by organization

2011 Goals met:  Distribution of scholarships and financial aid to our 75 dancers.  Establishment and funding of the Dorothy Jones Memorial Scholarships for Adult Dancers.  Workshops with Industry Great Mia Michaels.  Free Night Out of Theater community outreach that had over 700 in attendance for the one night of shows.  Theater events that had over 25,000 in attendance over the course of the year.  Exceeded our fundraising goals by 125%.  Exceeded our budget income and spent less than our budget projections, all while able to provide more to a wider audience.  Was part of grants that gave new sound systems to the theater and user rooms in Balboa Park.

 

Our goals for 2012 are to expand our financial aid and scholarship programs, providing more aid to those low income students of all ages that might not otherwise be able to participate in the art form of dance.  We are also working on grants to be able to upgrade aspects of both our theater and user group rooms.  We are aiming to increase our board membership by 125%, as well as our volunteer participation that currently logs more than 20,000 hours a year
