Dance is for Everyone

At AMB, we live our commitment that dance is for everyone, partnering with more than 100 schools and 30 community partners to bring the inspiration of dance to people from diverse backgrounds.

We share the breathtaking experience of professional dance by providing over 1,000 complimentary tickets each season to people in need in the community. These are our neighbors: foster kids, individuals with disabilities, cancer-ward patients, and families experiencing financial difficulty. We spread magic by partnering with our fantastic roster of over 30 local social service agencies and hospital partners, including Boys Town, Child Connect, El Museo Latino, Heartland Family Service, Nebraska Medicine, and many others.

Our special school matinee performances reach more than 7,500 area students each year, and students from Title I schools are offered free admission and transportation to remove the barrier that even a modest fee can create. Many of these children have never experienced a live theater performance before. 

At the AMB School, we foster a love of dance for students of all ages through exceptional training and performance opportunities. We also provide tuition scholarships to ensure access to dance for students in need.
