The Fort Wayne Dance Collective believes that anyone can move. Regardless of age, size, or ability, movement is a fundamental part of everyday life. When people move, the positive impact is felt throughout our entire community. This movement transforms our community and propels it forward.

For the last 40 years, you have made it possible for the Fort Wayne Dance Collective to inspire and empower people of all ages and abilities through movement and rhythm. Your generous support helped FWDC impact the lives of over 41,000 people throughout Northeast Indiana, last year alone. As we move into the next 40 years, the future of the Fort Wayne Dance Collective focuses on promoting health, wellness, and education for all individuals in Northeast Indiana, and we need your help!

Fort Wayne Dance Collective’s operating funds come from the support of our local community. Supporters just like you, who believe in our ability to transform the lives of those around us through our inspiring and empowering performances and programs. With your support, we can make our community stronger. With your support, we can transform lives.

Transformation is evident in the lives of FWDC program participants everyday. People like DeShawn, who participated in FWDC’s Dance in Education program for 3 years.

“I was a troublesome kid who couldn’t control my ADHD.”

Fort Wayne Dance Collective provided an atmosphere where DeShawn could explore all aspects of movement and rhythm.

“When I dance, it is soothing and I can relieve stress and anger. Dance helped me become a better person. It gave me a life outside of sports to explore my creativity.”

Together we can continue to transform more lives, just like DeShawn.

Everyone can move – through the blink of an eye, the tap of a foot, or the sweep of an arm, movement transforms.

Join us as we move into the next 40 years and donate today!
