We are on the "ROAD" to matching $5,000 this Giving Tuesday!

We are excited to announce a MATCHING GIFT from one of our alumna who has graciously agreed to match up to $5,000 in donations to BXO's Reach Out and Dance® (ROAD®) program through the end of the year. Join our movement to keep dance education in public schools and help us reach our goal!

All contributions will be matched 1:1. Any donation made by an alumni of BXO will be matched 2:1 - that means $1 donated by alumni will be matched with $2!

Countdown to Giving Tuesday!


For over 25 years our mission has been simple yet profound: To bring the joy and healing benefits of dance to those who may not receive the opportunity otherwise.

This Giving Tuesday, we invite you to be a part of our mission. Your generous contribution can enable us to expand our reach, offer more dance programs, and touch the lives of even more people.

Every dollar you donate directly contributes to creating more smiles, more laughter, and more healing through the beauty of dance.
