The Dancing Spirit Community Arts Center is a Colorado non-profit entity located in downtown Ignacio, Colorado. We now have 5,000 square feet of space in which to offer more opportunities to celebrate and explore the diverse cultural traditions of Ignacio and the surrounding communities.
Dancing Spirit Community Art Center is a 501(c)3 that is dedicated to providing our community with programs that enhance creativity and fellowship, that promotes education, appreciation and enjoyment of the arts and that celebrates the cultural heritage of our unique population.
We offer ongoing art classes for kids, adults, and families and we serve our community with programs that bring us all together, lift everyone up, and heal our pasts.
We began as a grassroots artist co-op founded on cooperative principles, and focused on education in the community. We successfully use cultural strengths, such as collective vision, respect for elders, stewardship, and cooperation among group members to create a community-wide culture identified with self-empowerment.
