Do you believe that dance belongs in our rich arts community? Do you believe in Arts Education for all students, not just the priviledged? Do you believe in the importance of the creative voice; to tell stories, invoke conversation and document historic moments in our lives? 

Please consider becoming a part of our Support Network by donating today. The projects, ideas and artists that Nebula promotes rely on YOU. Today more than ever we rely on public support to ensure the livelihood of the arts, with congressional pressures to remove government support. Your dedication makes all the difference! Your donation will directly affect the lives of over 2,400 elementary students this Fall when they attend our Kids Matinee performance featuring original work by visual artists, live musicians and dance!

We are actively requesting community support to assist with rehearsal space, costume(s), artist(s), and production costs. Please be a part of this exciting season. 

Join us! Let's make art available to all. :)
