A Dance Event by Community-Minded Dance

Community-Minded Dance is committed to education: this event serves as a fundraiser for our organization, and the amazing instructors we bring in for this event also visit local schools during the week, giving Colorado adolescents and teenagers the opportunity to learn from the best in the world.

These youth would never have this opportunity without these instructors, and guess what … we could not bring them here and have Lindy Diversion without you! You are not only getting access to a fantastic event, you are helping to provide arts education to students all over Colorado!
