Review for Stella Nova Dance Company, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Stella Nova has been fabulous for our daughter. It has given her a focus, supported her development physically, as an artist, and as a young adult, and the whole group is so nice. The productions are amazing and give us real appreciation for dance,music, and the arts. Our involvement with Stella Nova draws us closer to the other families and makes all of us richer for the experience. Caron and Josh Feder

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

helping the dancers become more confident and competent as dancers and as young, self-aware citizens.

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

Grow it over time to help it become more financially self-sufficient, better knwn, and continue to extend its reach to youth across the county.

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

The people!

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

Helpful, committed, and hard working.

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

Bring dance, support the development, and raise social and environmental awareness to 100 million people (or more).

Ways to make it better...

We had more funds to do more programming and pay our volunteer executive and artistic directors.

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

Finding more good people to help it grow and creating programs that help it become more self-sufficient.

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

I was reluctant to 'get involved' in another volunteer activity, but as I do more and more I get more and more from the experience and it helps shape and inform my other work.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
