Lift the Dance Community to New Heights
The Cowles Center was created to break the “concrete ceiling” that keeps dance a largely peripheral art form in our community. As a home for dance, The Cowles Center facilitates artistic collaboration, broadens resources for local artists, and encourages the vitality of Hennepin Avenue’s theater district, bringing dance center stage.
- Provides a premier venue, affordable studio and administrative space, and free marketing and technical support for local performing artists.
- Maintains low-priced tickets for audiences of all ages.
- Brings nationally award-winning education programs, led by local teaching artists, to more than 7,500 Minnesota students annually at minimal cost to schools, and often free-of-charge.
