Help young dancers and actors by giving

Friendship Through Dance is a nonprofit organization created to assist young dancers and performance artists  in the San Luis Obispo area. 

Friendship Through Dance hosts many fundraisers throughout the year, most of which include participation by the young dancers and actors in our community who benefit. 

It is our hope that no dancer will be denied the opportunity to participate due to financial hardship.  Your donation makes a difference in the life of a child.
