"The CityDance DREAM Gala is Washington's most hip, unconventional, and inspiring evening celebrating the gifts of world class dancers, the dreams of DC's most creative young people, and the hope of a more artistically inspired and inclusive future." - Gala Emcee Tim Shriver

Proceeds support CityDance DREAM,  a tuition-free dance program that seeks to level the playing field for students living in underserved DC neighborhoods by providing access to the highest-quality dance training integrated with academic supports and family services.

Thank you to all who came out to support the CityDance DREAM Gala 2018! The gala raised more than $250,000 for CityDance DREAM! The night included mesmerizing performances by the world's leading classical, contemporary, hip-hop & tap dance artists. Following the performance, sponsors and performers hit the dance floor.
