The Dance Council fosters awareness and enthusiasm for the Trudl Zipper Dance Institute and provides important financial resources for Colburn’s young dancers. Through educational and social events, and backstage access to Colburn Dance, you will enjoy a deeper understanding of TZDI with other enthusiasts who share your love of this performing art. In addition, you help us provide the optimum dance education experience—in studio and on stage—plus the essential resources required for dancers to excel.
