Join the fight against childhood cancer by becoming an official Dance Hope Cure Studio! Simply fill out the form and one of our volunteers will be in touch with you to discuss the many opportunities your studio can have to make a difference for children with cancer.

Each official studio will join forces with Dance Hope Cure’s parent foundation, Arms Wide Open Childhood Cancer Foundation, to help eliminate childhood cancer. The studios will host events/activities throughout the year in order to bring awareness and pledge to raise a minimum of $1,000 in donations.

Dance Hope Cure Studios are recognized by a custom plaque, social media shout outs and recognition at our many special events.

Some fun awareness and fundraising ideas that some studios have hosted in the past include:

  • Benefit concerts – performance by the company’s dancers to raise awareness for the foundation; proceeds go towards the foundation
