Festival Dance and Performing Arts Association invites you join us as we continue our efforts to bring the arts to the people and the people to the arts in our area. Because of the ever increasing financial stress on arts programs of all kinds, maintaining a dance academy and attracting professional performing arts to our area is a complex and challenging task and we need your assistance to ensure that we not only provide outstanding performances, but that we support our YouthReach programs as well.
Bringing the arts to the people and the people to the arts guided by the core values of:
Nurturing of local talent
Community involvement and Artistic
As you know, Festival Dance is one of the busiest non-profit arts organizations in the region providing:
Our programs include:
Great Performances Series, a series of major events featuring performances by acclaimed ballet, modern dance, jazz, musical theatre and ethnic dance companies.
Festival Dance Academy, providing professional dance instruction in Moscow, Troy, Genesee, and Lapwai. We are the premier provider of dance education in the region.
Festival ArtReach helps to build arts programs in rural communities.
Festival YouthReach offers free performances for local schools by professional artists.
FDPA is funded by the Gladys E. Langroise Advised Fund in the Idaho Community Foundation, the Idaho Commission on the Arts, the Latah County Community Foundation, the Mary Jewett Gaiser Unifund of the George Frederick Jewett Foundation, the Myron Schreck Family Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the New England Foundation for the Arts, the U.S. Bancorp Foundation, the Washington State Arts Commission, and the Western States Arts Federation, in addition to other community organizations. While these are some impressive groups, the funding we receive doesn’t allow us to do all that we do. We must get additional funding from individuals to continue to survive.
More about us:
Some of the best things in life aren’t free, and this includes the arts! We barely break even financially! Even with the grants we are awarded! The arts all across the nation are struggling to make ends meet. FDPA struggles to pay rents, salaries, artist fees, theatre and technical costs, (for events that would not normally be here if it was for profit because it’s not profitable.) publicity, insurance, printing etc., while still keeping ticket prices for those events and class fees affordable, and offering free arts programs to all the schools in the region. Each year we turn to people like you who care about the arts, our youth and the quality of life to help us cover the income gap with your generous donations.
If you believe that performing arts are important and vital to enhancing the quality of life of residents in our region, please send us your generous contribution. In order to achieve our fund-raising goal this year, it is imperative that our supporters step forward with vigor.
We appreciate you and your support!
