Dance for Food - STL
The Grandel Theatre
Dance for Food is a series of professional, high quality dance performances where the price of admission is non-perishable food items.
Dance for Food, by design, is multi-faceted in its community impact. Students from underrepresented areas are given opportunities they would not normally be afforded, professional dancers are given a living wage for their performance and willingness to coach younger dancers, patrons who would not otherwise be able to access a professional dance performance are given a cultural opportunity, food banks are given a unique awareness and food collection opportunity, and many struggling people are impacted by the donated food. Each season, Dance for Food has the potential to serve a minimum of 5,000 residents of the St. Louis Region.

The Cotter's Salon Series are intimate gatherings hosted by Tim & Maureen Cotter at their home in Mariner Sands Country Club. In addition to cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, guests are treated to performances by exceptional young A4AC talent. Industry professionals are also invited to give feedback, useful to the development of our young talent. This program has been so successful that we will be replicating it in more communities in Florida and in the St. Louis area.
We want to thank all attendees and are especially thankful to Tim and Maureen Cotter for all that they have done to support our cause and make this opportunity possible for all of us!
If you or someone you know in either Martin County, Florida or St. Louis City or County would be interested to host an event that could support the development of young artists that are actively involved with Artists for a Cause programs, please email email@example.com.
