Support Stapleton School

The Stapleton School of Performing Arts, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, takes great pride in offering high quality, affordable performing arts programs in an inclusive, supportive environment. Tuition and workshop fees only cover a portion of our operating expenses. Your support will help us to continue our excellent training programs; create and enhance high quality ballet and theatrical productions, provide valuable performing opportunities to youth and adults; offer financial aid to those in need; and share the arts with those who would not otherwise have the opportunity through our outreach program, DanceReach. There are a variety of ways that individuals and businesses may support Stapleton:
