Friends of Metro Dance


Friends of Metro Dance is a volunteer organization supporting the quality educational programs of the Dance Division of the Metropolitan Board of Parks and Recreation.
Formed in 1991, the organization supports the Dance Division beyond the scope of government funding. The group funds performances by Centennial Youth Ballet and sponsors special dance-related activities including a summer dance intensive for teens, continuing education for faculty, student scholarships, and master classes open to Dance Division students and the general public. Additionally, Friends of Metro Dance equips and maintains three state of the art dance studios and has been critical to sustaining affordable dance education within the public sector in Nashville.
