About Fort Wayne Dance Collective

The mission of the Fort Wayne Dance Collective (FWDC)  is to inspire and empower people of all ages and abilities through movement and rhythm.

Established in 1979,  FWDC has grown to include onsite and offsite classes,  as well as outreach programming for pre-k through 12th-grade students and people with disabilities.  In 2014,  FWDC established the Healing Arts therapy program in partnership with Parkview Health Systems.  FWDC serves more than 30,000 people annually with the support of four staff members,  30 sub-contracted instructors and more than 50 volunteers.  FWDC believes that dancing is for all body types and abilities,  all children should be given the opportunity to discover dance,  and dancing can change the world.  FWDC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and a principal partner of Arts United.
