Review for The Center For Contemporary Dance Inc, Winter Park, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our dance company, Yow Dance, recently began the application process for residency at The Center for Contemporary Dance. Long before this we were well aware of both Craig Johnson and Dario Moore, the two key role players at "The Center". Their reputation in our community is well known, not only in the dance community, but in the art and philanthropy communities especially, as is evidenced by the broad support they get from the well respected organization United Arts. As I have gotten to know the two gentlemen better, have seen them in action, and can now see first hand how their commitment to dance and the city of Orlando is most directly reflected by The Center for Contemporary Dance, I can see the dramatic impact on our community. Their mission to Produce, Encourage, Cultivate, and Reach is firmly in place and making a difference. Just last week I saw a performance put on by one of the companies that partner with The Center and can see with clarity that the dance organizations that call The Center home are well selected to carry forward the mission even more!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their willingness to help individuals and fellow organizations grow.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

accomodating, passionate, and supportive of The Center for Contemporary Dance's mission.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world, not just the immediate Orlando vicinity.

Ways to make it better...

... this would be difficult to improve on. So much is being done well already.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

additional funding but not for lack of qualification or talent in applying for it through grants.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this is a very special and well respected organization.
