Dancers for a Cause is an organization that brings together diverse individuals and organizations in the greater Colorado dance and arts community to support causes in need through fundraising initiatives and annual galas.
The organization was founded in 2018 with a very specific purpose. A dancer in the community was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia and the community rallied to help this beloved individual in his fight with cancer. Though the initial gala had a specific focus, the scope of the organization’s vision quickly expanded. We felt that it was important to build on the enthusiastic sense of collaboration that had been created to officially establish what is now “Dancers for a Cause.” Our new organization’s wider scope looks to help a different cause in need each year. We recognize that we all know of someone who has been affected by a life-threatening illness and by shifting our focus yearly, we aim to bring together our community to raise awareness and support these causes. To do so, we have cultivated a team and board from different corners of the greater Denver community to create an inclusive organization of the community and for the community with a vision to effect change through dance.
