About Dancers Against Cancer
The “I’m A Dancer Against Cancer” campaign was founded in 2012 in a response to the loss of a young dancer from cancer. Since then, it has become a beacon of hope in the dance community, uniting dancers all over the nation.
In 2014, Dancers Against Cancer became an official 501(c) 3 to continue to provide financial assistance to dance educators, dancers and family members impacted by cancer. To date, DAC has proudly raised over 2 MILLION dollars in donations that directly benefit those in need.
Dancers Against Cancer is grateful for the support of the dance community and we will continue to make a difference in the lives of dancers fighting cancer.

Hope Studios are setting an exceptional example by being leaders in the fight against cancer. Each official Hope Studio has pledged to raise at least $1000 in support of Dancers Against Cancer (DAC).
