We recognize and fully believe in the importance art has in the life and development of students of all ages. In an effort to serve those outside our campus and invest in our society, we often take the talent off the Dana Center stage and bring the artists and ensembles into the community.

During the 2007-2008 season we hosted an off-site performance event at Manchester’s Memorial High School where we offered an hour-long performance of Alpha Yaya Diallo, who performed African rock funk to more than 2,000 enthusiastic students. During the 2008-2009 season, we offered two off-site performances sharing with the community the talents of Ragamala Music and Dance Theater and Buckets and Tap Shoes.

We are committed to participating in the Manchester and New Hampshire community, to sharing cultural resources, and having a positive impact in the lives of our neighbors and fellow citizens.
