for general operating support  
Zohar Dance Company is dedicated to making dance accessible, inclusive, vibrant, relevant and integral to its South Bay community. Zohar offers an Open Program of weekly dance classes for adults in jazz, ballet, contemporary and modern dance, as well as annual performance opportunities for these students. With the recent and unexpected passing of its founder, Ehud Krauss, the company is revisiting its strategic plan to find the most thoughtful path forward. Renewed support will allow Zohar to continue its classes and company performances, explore new opportunities to present local dance artists, and determine the future of its outreach programs to children with special needs, which Ehud so specially and beautifully stewarded.
