We’re putting on our dancing shoes!

We are so excited to be participating in the 2018 Swingshift and the Stars! 


If you are unfamiliar with Swingshift, it’s an exciting community fundraising campaign that highlights local charitable organizations and puts them center stage with performances at the City Opera House! Each organization is represented by a local community star and a community dancer, and performs twice during the season. Don’t miss the performances to see professionally choreographed shows and your local leaders and celebrities busting their best moves!

We are represented by the contagiously enthusiastic duo of local celebrity floral designer, Derek Woodruff, owner of Floral Underground, and our very own Executive Director, Grace Hudson! Get your tickets today to save your seat to see Grace and Derek perform on October 19 and December 14, and – most importantly – vote with your dollars at the show! Please order tickets through the donation link, or by emailing

We’ll be working hard from now until January 16 to raise at least $30,000 to reach our Swingshift goal!

Thank you to Bodies in Motion Studio for donating a safe and fun practice place for us!

All dollars go directly to Arts for All and will help us expand our programs to surrounding counties, and add advanced learning and community learning classes for individuals of all abilities to create and express themselves together!

We need YOU to help us reach our goal! DONATE NOW!
