I've volunteered and attended several Cheshire Moon charity events. They are doing an amazing job of promoting dance and the arts. Everyone has a wonderful time and always walks away feeling inspired. They're not just raising money. They're raising awareness in a fun and engaging way. I look forward to being a part of more Cheshire Moon events!

We were lucky to partner with Cheshire Moon for a family program where hip-hop dancers taught kids and adults dance moves inspired by sculpture. From our first meeting, Cheshire Moon’s dedication to the program and response to our needs was overwhelmingly positive. Cheshire Moon’s roster of incredibly talented, committed, and passionate teachers and artists is one that cannot be found elsewhere. It is clear they are committed to dance, education, and community.

Cheshire Moon's mission of increasing access to arts education and performances is a noble one. And I have seen firsthand just how the organization is effecting positive change in kids' lives.
You cannot help but to feel a visceral passion for dance and the arts when attending one of the group's Dancescape events. Although both the audience members and dancers range widely in age and hail from vastly different backgrounds, all are united with a common fervor and sense of purpose … raising funds for sorely-needed arts programs in L.A. public schools.
Jamie Gregor is a one-woman dynamo with a clear vision, who is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve the goals of Cheshire Moon – whether it’s teaching free dance classes to underprivileged kids or using her prowess as a networker to put together an entertaining, yet successful fundraising event.
I see enormous potential for the continued grown of Cheshire Moon as well as the opportunity to promote arts education in Los Angeles schools - and far beyond!

Working with Cheshire Moon Inc. and the every giving Jamie Gregor has been incredible!!! They are always thinking about how they can bring the Arts to local LA communities and constantly giving back. I've been fortunate enough to participate in the event with Cheshire Moon Inc. partnered with The Hammer Museum at UCLA. I've been to DanceScape events for years and finally this year got to meet Jamie and work with her and hope to continue the work with Cheshire and DanceScape more in the future!!! -M.

i learned about Cheshire Moon via one of their programs, Dancescape. Watching the joy on the faces of hundreds of young dancers over the past two years of events reinforces why Cheshire Moon is so important to this community. They are making dreams come true for people who may not have even realized they could have those dreams without their help. They are helping to shape the future, and to make sure that the arts are a part of that future.
