Raising the barre

It's year three of Summit's benefit show, Raising the Barre! This show has been a dream since Summit opened. We couldn't be prouder to use dance in a positive way to help our community. The performance will consist of all of our Team Dances from the 2023-24 Season, plus a heartfelt speech from our benefactor representative, and a special stage adaptation of our PSA video shoot! Summit will be hosting a Donation Drive prior to the show. Sit back and enjoy the show as our Team dances their hearts out, and we raise money for our amazing benefactor; Washington State Department of Youth and Families!

DCYF helps support youth in the foster care system, those in at-risk situations (runaways, juvenile rehabilitation, etc.), adoption support, and more.

Our guiding principles:
  • A relentless focus on outcomes for children;

  • A commitment to collaboration and transparency;

  • A commitment to using data to inform and evaluate reforms, leveraging and aligning existing services with desired child outcomes;

  • A focus on supporting staff as they contribute to the agency’s goals and outcomes.
