Since 1995, ARENA DANCES has been delighting audiences and educating youth not only throughout the state of Minnesota but internationally. Founded by Artistic Director and Choreographer, Mathew Janczewski the mission of ARENA DANCES is to make dance accessible to all through the presentation of contemporary dance, educational outreach, and community gatherings to inspire, promote dialogue and diversity. ARENA DANCES continues to evolve and strengthen this mission each year through the introduction of new programming, attention on diverse collaboration and venues, and crafting socially-relevant choreographic works. We aim to raise awareness and support for the work ARENA is pursuing in its 23rd year of life in the Twin Cities dance community...and to welcome in the long awaited summer weather! Come celebrate the summer night with crafted beverages, hors d'oeuvres, experiential and unique auction items and much more. This event is set to become a special experience for all who attend, so please bring the fun, your checkbooks and enjoy the live performances during this do not miss event.

All donations raised this evening will go toward funding the second year of our DanceON program at Highland Park Senior High and Creative Arts Secondary School in St. Paul, and Roosevelt H.S. in Minneapolis. DanceON is an outreach program that brings ARENA DANCES to local schools for week-long immersive residencies - teaching modern technique classes, developing a dance piece together, sharing company rehearsals and engaging in dialogue about how to create and talk about dance into today's context.
