art heals and dance changes lives
AMP is committed to providing creative guidance, mentorship, and financial support to young and emerging artists in the greater Santa Barbara Area.
AMP partners with Santa Barbara Dance Arts to run four Student Dance Companies. Company members receive formal dance training, while also being trained in philanthropy and mentorship.
AMP awards need-based scholarships to youth whose families face financial and/or medical hardships. We work closely with local non-profits to bring the gift of dance to our community’s most vulnerable populations.
AMP believes dance should have no boundaries. NO LIMITS provides FREE programs that introduce children to the world of movement and expression.
The Inclusion Coalition’s mission is to raise awareness about different perspectives, create safe and brave spaces to elevate issues surrounding BIPOC, mental health, body positivity, LBGTQ+, feminism, disabilities, and intersectionality.
The AMP Rent Subsidy Program plays a vital role in supporting the artists that make incredible events possible by providing 40 hours per week of studio space. Each year we serve over 200 performing artists and thousands of their constituents.
