The dance complex is an amazing community-run safe place where I feel free to try, to fail, to learn, and to grow as a dancer and a person.

This place is a true pillar of the Dance Community in the area. Eighteen Years ago, we held the first Children's Dance Festival (an open, non-competitive, educational, delightful day of dance for youth from different schools, companies, styles) at the Dance Complex. Their offer of free space for the day made it possible to run the festival on a shoestring and not have to charge the participants. This allowed us a wider range of participants and contributed to the longevity of the festival.

A local treasure. One of the greatest community dance centers in the country. Diverse in term so of classes offered, performances, population served. There is something for everyone here. Our lives, our community is enriched because of The Dance Complex!

I am an elder dancer in my 70's and so grateful to the Dance Complex for being there. It has changed my life! So many wonderful dancer/choreographer/teachers work there, e.g. Diane Arvanites, Tommy Neblett, Daniel McCusker,Danny Swain, just to name a few,and there are plentiful opportunities to take classes and excellent classes geared to older dancers, as those taught by Andy Taylor-Blenis and Tommy Neblett. Prometheus Dance Elders Ensemble, a post-professional company of which I am a member, is based there with rehearsals and annual performances. Rozann, Jayne, and Danny keep everything running. The newly renovated space is welcoming.

Every time I walk into the Dance Complex, I feel happy. The place isn't fancy, but it's filled with people who know how to find joy in their lives. There's a great community spirit; the classes are first rate. Everyone is welcome. The spirit is democratic. It restores my faith in humanity and in my city.
