Join our Eight Count

The 8-COUNT is a new business sponsorship program that we are launching this year, highlighting 8 local businesses.  Just as the eight count foundational to dance, our local businesses are a foundation for our dance community.  

Funds raised through the 8-COUNT support important enrichment to the dance program that are not funded by AISD. We support the mission of the Dance Program of building an artistic community through diversity and respect for dance as culture.  This involves giving our dancers  exposure to choreographers and master classes that allows them to experience the diversity and richness of different dance forms.

Through this program, businesses support the dance program with monetary donations and in turn, we support and promote these businesses throughout the year.  The McCallum Youth Dance Company has two major performances during the school year, which reach an audience of over 1,500 people from across the city.  Your business will be featured at both performances:

All donations are made to the McCallum Dance Guild, which is a 501(c)(3) with the sole purpose f supporting the Dance Program at McCallum.  To learn more or if you have questions, contact
