Silk Road Dance Company holds exciting fundraising events that are fabulous and fun. In 2011, we had pre-Halloween costume sale, a Central Asian "chaikhona" (tea house) and a Silk Road bazaar. In 2012, our donors had the opportunity to attend a special Silk Road Dance Company concert at the Embassy of Uzbekistan. Guests also enjoyed a buffet of traditional Uzbek cuisine. When you "like" our Facebook page, you can keep up with our busy schedule and enjoy the latest photos and video clips.
Our dedicated volunteers assist in many ways, from photography to graphic design to backstage help. You can also join our Silk Road "Caravan of Joy" by sharing your time and talent. We often need volunteers at our major concerts to assist with different aspects of production, like painting sets or greeting audience members. If you have a specialized skill you would like to share, please let us know. If you have a business, you can become a sponsor.
