HISTORY

The Dance Fund was created in 2005 by Randy Allaire and Bill Prudich known for creating EDGE Performing Arts Center, L.A's leading professional dance studio since 1992, and the successful LADF Convention/Competition (1989-2010). Both Allaire and Prudich are an integral part of the Los Angeles dance community first as performers, and later as educators and business owners.  "After 20-plus years with EDGE and 26-years with the Scholarship Program, we wanted to do more so we created The Dance Fund, a nonprofit organization, to do it."

MISSION

The Dance Fund is a national organization that promotes and advocates dance and provides education and performance programs, resources and funding by means of internal and external programs, scholarship awards, grants, and sponsorships for the betterment and advancement of individuals, education, performance, resources and preservation.
