The Cowles Center for Dance & the Performing Arts

612-206-3600||http://thecowlescenter.org

The Cowles Center is a dance and performing arts hub that promotes movement and growth for artists through supportive programs and spaces; engages audiences through dynamic performances; and educates learners of all ages through robust and inclusive education initiatives.

We program an exciting season annually, representing more than 20 local artists and companies that showcase the depth and breadth of the Twin Cities’ professional dance scene.

We partner with artists and companies in our season by providing subsidized marketing and production support, letting the artists focus on their performances.

We educate through high-quality arts learning programs, serving students of all ages statewide, via residencies, workshops, and student matinees.

We support the growth and life cycle of dancers and companies through our below-market-rate offices, studios, and stages; and through community engagement programs, McKnight Fellowships, and our MERGE program.
