Your support contributes to building a strong dance sector in San Jose!

San Jose Dance Theatre has been a key contributor to the San Francisco Bay Area art scene for over 55 years.

San Jose Dance Theatre’s Mission is to foster the art of dance through our annual production of the Nutcracker San Jose. While dancer participation fees and ticket sales support the ongoing production, donations enable us to update costumes and sets, support our ability to have a live orchestra, and help us to provide financial-need based scholarships for students and full tuition scholarships for boys. We greatly appreciate your donation!

San Jose Dance Theatre is a 501(c) non-profit organization. Our tax ID# is 94-2233859.

Keep San Jose Dancing campaign!

Today, the arts industry is facing one of its greatest struggles. For the first time in history, studios are dark. In this time of crisis, we need your support now more than ever.

That is why we are creating THE KEEP SAN JOSE DANCING campaign to emerge from this crisis strong and ready to support the dance industry in San Jose.

The purpose of this fund is to…

– Support families who are unable to afford fees

– Replace lost revenues from canceled or postponed performances

– Replace revenues from postponed Academy/Engagement programs 

– Support emerging and professional dancers

Any gift, no matter the size, will help sustain our artists and organization during this time. Help us reach our $10,000 goal!

Donor Program

Our performances, outreach programs and academy bring the art of dance to the San Francisco Bay Area. We are passionate about being arts leaders in our city and catering for all members of our community.

Through school visits, Girl Scouts workshops, and highly discounted performances, we bring the art form to the wider communities and demographics which don’t have the opportunity to engage in dance.

In 2020 we will celebrate our 55th year as the major dance organization for San Jose. 

These services to the Bay community have continued through the decades thanks to our dancers, volunteers, and donors.

Any donation you can provide will be appreciated.
