Your support to the PTDT creates a stronger, healthier, more creative community. For almost three decades we’ve created innovative programs including;

Community Choreography Project Began 1987. Matinee audience members helped create choreography for evening performance. Originally funded by the City of Davis’ Arts Contract Program. Subsequent programs funded by PTDT.

Coming of Age Began 1993. Working with “non-traditional” dancers ranging in age from 8 – 80+ while exploring the multi-generational choreography. Funded by the City of Davis’ Arts Contract Program.

The Third Stage Began 1994. Creation of multi-generational contemporary company. Originally funded by the City of Davis’ Arts Contract Program, continued under PTDT after first year.

Second Wind classes Began 1994. Free classes for senior citizens 65 and older. Funded by the PTDT, following the Coming of Age project.

The Davis Dance Project Began 1997. Originally a production of various local dance companies, [first year funded by the City of Davis’ Arts Contract program], this has evolved into a lecture/demonstration and performance of various concepts about dance, hosted by the PTDT, with guests. Funded by donations, children 12 and younger come to this concert for free.

Taking it to the Streets: Dance in Public Places Began 2010. Over a year of free classes for community residents to learn choreography for semi-spontaneous performances in public places. First year funded by the city of Davis’ Arts contract Program, now funded by the PTDT.

Dance for Parkinson’s Began 2010. PTDT helps sponsor free classes for people with Parkinson’s Disease and their caregivers, in affiliation with the Mark Morris Dance Group, and in partnership with the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, UC Davis.
