I have supported Sand Diego Dance Theatre and enjoyed multiple performances for over 10 years. Jean Isaacs is an innovator, mentor, and outstanding Artistic Director. She has inspired, taught and given multiple beginning dancers their start in the modern dance world. Jean Isaacs through her invention of The Trolley Dances has exposed a vast number of new audience members to Modern Dance. Who knows how many tiny tots to teenagers has her work and the work of other National and Internationally known choreographers introduced and helped create the future modern dancers, choreographers and Artistic Directors.
Jean Isaacs is a visionary.

What a wonderful idea...providing music and dance to a group of high school students that have neither in their curriculum...And not just a good idea on paper...the students really love it! The performance was great..everyone was having fun and had learned an incredible amount in such a short period.

DanceFierce is a wonderful organization. As school funding for the arts continues to be cut in San Diego and throughout the nation, we desperately need programs like this to keep students engaged, focused, and excited about school. I am so grateful that this program exists within my community, and can benefit students throughout the San Diego area.

DANCE FIERCE and SDDT are changing lives day by day! Cortney Golub is tireless in her efforts to connect SDDT with young people in the community and is succeeding beyond measures! Kids need arts, particulatly performance arts opportunities. There are no programs in San Diego who refuse to exist unless they have the ability to serve all. DANCE FIERCE you are an inspiration. I hope you can get funding to continue your efforts. Cortney, you are simply amazing.

The Great!

Jean Isaacs, the director of San Diego Dance Theatre, has spent her life building the dance community in San Diego. It is difficult to imagine that this community would ever have matured without her artistic vision and adventurousness, dedication to training dancers, and gift for mentoring students--not only those intending to make dance their career, but those for whom it is a hobby, a passion pursued alongside work in completely different areas.

I am a public health researcher with a PhD in mathematics. When I studied in San Diego, I took numerous dance classes offered by this company, its members, and its director. They made a major impact on my life, increasing both my skills as a dancer and my self-confidence in general. My appreciation for all the arts increased as a direct result of Jean Isaacs' guidance.

San Diego Dance Theatre has been an integral part of the dance community in San Diego ever since Jean Isaacs became its artistic director. Not only does it generate excellent artistic work in several shows per year, but it also offers excellent classes to the public (including programs for kids in disadvantaged neighborhoods), performance opportunities to both professional and semi-professional dancers, and mentorship to choreographers in the earlier stages of their careers.

This company is a gift to San Diego and the world.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

... my life as a dancer by hobby and an audience member. The arts are essential to a fulfilling life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

... find more funding. The arts are especially hard-hit during a recession.
