Leverage Dance Theater

Give STL Day


Leverage needs help from people like you.

For the art of dance to thrive, those who understand its value must be its stewards. By supporting professional dance financially, you ensure that this work will continue.

Leverage Dance Theater is gearing up for Give STL Day, and needs your support to meet the following goals:

1) Reach hundreds of elementary school students through our residency at Intersect Art Center. Intersect Arts will provides many opportunities for Leverage to grow its programming and be of greater service in a community where over 50% of youth live in poverty and are at-risk. 

2) Increase pay for dancers, so they can dedicate themselves more fully to their craft, ensuring Leverage continues to have access to professional artists, and is able to improve the quality of our work.

3) Limit programming cuts and salary freezes due to budget cuts in public arts funding. $1758 granted to the company this year by the State of Missouri will be withheld. You support will help us to shore ourselves against additionally proposed arts funding cuts at both the Federal and State level. 

Why Give on Give STL Day: 

Your gift to Leverage on Give STL Day, could help us win an extra $1000-$5000 for having the greatest number of givers or the most dollars raised in our size category. Your gift also enters you to win 2 tickets to a Cardinals or Blues Game. Winners chosen every hour throughout the day.

Leverage is most interested in your support during the 20 in 20! Lift times:

Visit Our Page to see what we are up to for 2018 and make a gift in ANY amount. GiveSTL Day

We hope you will help us continue our mission to make dance in the St. Louis community. During the 20 min Lift times, every donation will be “lifted” with a pro-rated share of $20,000. In prior years, donations made during the least busy 20 in 20 received as much as 84 cents for every dollar raised. During very busy 20 in 20 times, the lift amount was 20 cents for every dollar raised. If you are the kind of person who likes to get the most bang for your buck and are a morning person, make your gift during the 6:20am lift time. The first $500 donated to Leverage will be matched 1-to-1 by a private donor. This means donors during the 6:20am lift time could have their gift almost tripled.
