An adventure in the arts to engage kids’ hands and expand their minds
Each year, nearly 70,000 schoolchildren visit the Arvada Center and experience
live professional theater and hands-on arts workshops, often for the first time. Your donation helps make the arts possible for thousands of low-income students
and children with disabilities.
Arvada Center Dance
A unique and inspiring opportunity for dancers to learn and grow
From the progressive and disciplined structure of the Dance Academy to
introductory dance classes for young children and ageless adults, the Arvada
Center offers quality, professional training and mentorship for dancers of all ages
and abilities. Your support helps provide affordable options and scholarships for
participants and families in need.
Front Range Youth Orchestras
Front Range Youth Symphony, Chamber Orchestra & Concert Strings
Created to enhance instrumental music programs in schools, the Arvada Center’s orchestral training programs are educational and performance-based, serving hundreds of young musicians throughout the Denver metro and Front Range communities. Your donation helps provide affordable opportunities for students to refine their talents in music.

Enhance the quality of your child’s arts education!
The Arvada Center is about to renovate our outdated darkroom into a multimedia lab and convert several classrooms to
“smart classrooms” with computers, specialized software, and audio/visual capabilities.
The Boettcher Foundation and the Gates Family Foundation are supporting this project with two challenge grants,
$35,000 and $15,000, respectively. In order to receive these funds, we must raise the additional $200,000 by
December 2015. Your support is needed!
Please consider a contribution to the “Classroom Improvements” project when registering for a class. Contributions
of $150 or more will will receive a 10% discount off classes and/or camp enrollment.
