Several years ago Tustin Dance Center established a
non-profit entity named Dance! To Your Heart's Delight for
the purpose of promoting and spreading the joy of the arts to children and
families in Orange County. With the primary vision of
instilling in students' hearts a love for the art of dance within a
professional production arena, this holiday season we are proudly producing
and fully-staging our 19th annual The Nutcracker
Ballet, featuring a cast of nationally-renowned professional dancers and over
40 very talented student dancers from Tustin Dance Center. Our three amazing
performances will be held on the weekend of December 2 - 3, 2023 at beautiful
Downey Theatre in Downey.
As part of our mission and the emphasis of our HeARTS program, Dance! To Your Heart's Delight will also donate an
entire performance of our Nutcracker Ballet to the underserved in our
community on Friday, December 1, 2023 at Downey Theatre. This is our 10th
consecutive year of making significant ticket donations to the underserved. We need your help. Your sponsorship will help us accomplish this gift to the
community and offset the production expenses.
can also sponsor refreshments for recipients of Dance! To Your Hearts
Delight's events and performances. Sponsor refreshments for the underserved
at our December 1 performance of The Nutcracker at intermission. Or, sponsor
refreshments to the underserved and aged at our many 'Nutcracker in a
Nutshell' community mini-performances this fall.
The HeARTS program relies on the generous sponsorships and donations to
bring joy to the underserved and aged in our community at an often-difficult
time of year when they are reminded of their loss, loneliness or broken
family. Through your sponsorship, we can make the holidays less of a burden
for many of our neighbors.

Other Ways You Can Help Support Our Mission
As a part of the Tustin community since
1978, thousands of dancers have waltzed through the doors of Tustin Dance
Center. Our students attend local schools, dance on teams at OCSA,
Foothill, Tustin and Beckman High Schools, and many have gone on to
professional dance careers. And each year, we have the absolute
privilege of working with over 40 studio dancers who share their talents in
our Nutcracker Ballet performances.
We believe in the power of dance. Through
dance, our students learn how to move and express themselves, and how to
persevere when faced with adversity. Through dance, our students build the
confidence to lead and succeed in the classroom and in life. Through dance,
our students would love to bare their heart and soul to you in these upcoming
HeARTS program events.
