Review from Guidestar

My first involovement was taking workshop dance classes many years ago. I found the dancers welcoming including dance company members. The experince was so good I continued to take weekly classes as often as I was able. Once I participated in a summer workshop & perfromance I wanted that opportunity in my own community. With the help of a grant, Jean Isaacs and the dance company generously came every summer to teach and perform in Ramona CA for 20 years. Jean and her dancers not only gave the gift of dance but life experiences and lessons to many students ages 10 years to 60 years old. I'll always remember the high student from a foster home who took part in the workshop, learned her part in the dances, then watched as the professional dancers, now her friends, took the stage. She turns to me and says "I feel like they are dancing just for me". What a wonderful experience this dance company made available for this young person and many others!

The changes I would make to San Diego Dance Theater would be to offer more opportunities to students outside of San Diego to train and learn about choregraphy

My friend has been dancing with last fierce for the last school year and loved every minute of it. I was able to attend their winter performance which blew me away, and I left the performance energized to dance. The program is so unique and wonderful, allowing students this artistic outlet at High Tech High is extremely important. I’m looking forward to attending another performance and being blown away. The things these students can accomplish are unbelievable!

I would implement it as an organization into the High Tech High community even more than it is. And have the school give them more funding to allow all students the opportunity to dance.

San Diego Dance Theatre is a fantastic program to join if you like dancing. It's so much fun and I love the dance program i'm currently involved with. It's called dance fierce and works with the High Tech Schools in Chula Vista.

San Diego Dance Theater is San Diego's premier modern dance company with an effective educational outreach component. I first met Jean Isaacs and her company in 1992. I was a young teen living in a small town. Knowing the importance of dance as art and education, Ms. Isaacs and company members graciously drove 45 minutes on mountainous roads to my small town to teach a three week residency (tuition free to students) that culminated in a community performance starring the company and students. I attended this workshop for five years in that small town. San Diego Dance Theater has been instrumental is shaping my education and professional choices since that first meeting.

Ms. Isaacs introduced me to modern dance almost twenty years ago with her outreach program. Since then, I have graduated with a dance degree, attended a prestigious dance school in New York, earned a teaching credential and Master's od Education, and continue her legacy of dance education, serving thousands of underprivileged youth. San Diego Dance Theater has been instrumental in my development as a dancer and educator all along the way.

If I could improve this organization, I would provide it with a larger budget in order to enable the company to create more outreach opportunities and to make tours that reach beyond the borders of San Diego County.

The Dance Fierce program has served as an incredible creative outlet for students from all backgrounds and has united these students through the art of dance. Students who participate in this program are more well-rounded, expressive and balanced. They pride themselves on their hard work and are more motivated every day through their experiences.
