“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”

― Mother Teresa

S.A.M.E. utilizes a donation-based model to empower participants to donate what they can or what they will on the day of class or a month in advance. An $8 minimum per class or $30 monthly class package is suggested. However, any donation is welcome, which ultimately contributes to our mission of making inclusive dance expression and creative movement accessible to all. Cash donations will be collected after all classes. On-line donations (coming soon) are welcome, as well. In the online box please indicate the class date(s) that you are donating for. Please note that while classes are based on donations, registration is still required for all classes (including free sample classes) to reserve a space.
