This year has been one of unexpected funding policy changes and other transitions (we now teach west coast!) and UCSB is working hard to keep all of its events open to the public.
If you have ever benefited from the often free dance events that UCSB has been on in the past 5 years, now is the perfect time to tangibly give back to the community!

We need all of your support to continue sharing the dance community we love with UConn students--every little bit counts!
UPDATE TO FUNDING POLICY CHANGES: After working extensively with USG Senators, proposing and passing new policies, we've reached a point where the new funding policies MAY allow enough funding for events with public access, but there are still administrative barriers we are working to overcome. For the time being, every cent of financial support is deeply appreciated and instrumental in keeping this community alive and kicking! We have already put on one wonderful event this semester open to ALL with the Survivors of Swing--an event that would not have been possible without the generous support of the community!
