We began as a grassroots artist co-op founded on cooperative principles, and focused on education in the community. We successfully use cultural strengths, such as collective vision, respect for elders, stewardship, and cooperation among group members to create a community-wide culture identified with self-empowerment.
The demand for Dancing Spirit's work with youth continues to explode in all directions.
Dancing Spirit Community Art Center is a 501(c)3 that is dedicated to providing our community with programs that enhance creativity and fellowship, that promotes education, appreciation and enjoyment of the arts and that celebrates the cultural heritage of our unique population.
We offer ongoing art classes for kids, adults, and families and we serve our community with programs that bring us all together, lift everyone up, and heal our pasts.
From our kids programs to our adult classes, beginning ballet to competition dance, Dancing Spirit Community Art Center has something for everyone and every ability.
We are currently offering an after school art club for students ages 5-12, several different dance classes, yoga and adult art classes. We are also expanding our therapeutic arts curriculum as well as collaborating with the Tribal Justice program to design and pilot an arts-based "Wellness Court" program as an alternative to incarceration.
