Dance Houston Directory:
Dance from the Heart uses multi-cultural dance education and performance to reveal the common ground in our communities.
We began in 2005 with a benefit for the relief of victims of the Southeast Asia tsunami, through Oxfam America.
In 2007, we established our nonprofit status and continued to provide assistance by donating proceeds to Lighthouse Houston and the Alzheimer’s Association.
In 2011, the proceeds of our production were donated to Amazing Place, to provide care scholarships for families in need.
2012 brought significant change to DFTH. In October, we expanded our business by acquiring studio space in the Houston Woodland Heights area. This has allowed us to broaden our educational mission, while upholding our philanthropic vision.
We provide contributing dancers the opportunity to receive continuing education through Artist In Residence Programs, ongoing classes and workshops designed to deliver focused, intense instruction over a short period of time. With the DFTH Studio, we encourage adults in our community to try dance, even if they have never tried it before. We firmly believe that everyone can dance.
We encourage community relations, public outreach and awareness by donating time and talent to local events whose underlying mission shares our goals.
