Every year the Tahoe Arts Project holds their annual fundraiser, an amazing night of dance and performance called “Dancing with the Tahoe Stars.”  10 members of our community participate in the program.  They are paired with 10 of our community’s professional dance instructors, learn a dance routine and are judged by a “distinguished” panel of judges.  Youth dance and performance programs pepper the intermission and closing acts.  Overall, it’s an amazing night of entertainment that raises funding  to bring performing arts and cultural enrichment to schools in the South Lake Tahoe region in both CA & NV.

The Tahoe Arts Project reaches over 5,000 students, within 10 schools in El Dorado, Douglas, and Alpine counties of California and Nevada. The artists whom students meet through the TAP programs serve as role models that demonstrate the values of self-discipline and the pursuit of excellence.  Current research validates TAP’s philosophy that these experiences also help students develop their own creative and problem solving abilities, foster intellectual development and success in all academic areas.
