“What does ZUZI! Dance do for Tucson?”
We are still flyin', movin’ and dancin’ at ZUZI!
For over 20 years, ZUZI! has been transforming lives and building community through movement. ZUZI!’s mission is to empower personal expression, particularly for those who have struggled to find their creative voice. ZUZI! also gives dancers in the community who don’t have a place to perform a home and an audience with whom they can share their work. Through their classes and workshops for all ages and abilities, performances, summer camps for kids, and community outreach activities for schoolchildren and individuals with eating disorders, ZUZI! brings people together, sparks their imagination, stretches their limits, and helps them grow.
Your donations will help cover our monthly expenses which include insurance, bookkeeping, payroll, rent, teachers’ fees, costuming, guest artists, performance expenses, aerial trapeze maintenance and more. With your continuing donation we offer discounted classes and camps, scholarships, residencies with after school programs and private agencies, and opportunities for all ages to experience movement, creativity and joy!
When you step into a ZUZI! class, you’ll see children and adults with and without dance experience moving with the grace of professional dancers, discovering or rediscovering their true selves. You’ll also see different generations creating and moving together, and in the process, forming deep, genuine, heartfelt connections. After class, ZUZI! dancers take the insights and the connections they have made off the dance floor and into their everyday lives, where they find their own way, their own path, and enrich the larger community. Now children of former ZUZI! students are walking through the door and becoming ZUZI! dancers themselves. There’s a magic to this work.
Help ZUZI! raise $100,000. Together we can lay the groundwork for the future. Thank you for supporting us in the Tucson community, our home!
