Be a part of TYSOD History!

Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance has been thriving in its state-of-the-art facility since we moved in August 2020. Our studio is a magnificent place for our dancers to create and express themselves. One of the six outstanding studio spaces is an in-studio “black box” performance venue. We are thrilled to provide tiered stadium seating in this space for our enthusiastic audiences. With the help of many supporters, we are well on our way to making this space amazing…but there are still a few things we need. For a limited time you can sponsor a seat in our black box – funds raised through this program will help us improve lighting and other equipment we need for performances.

What story will your seat tell? Whether you choose to honor your dancer, remember a loved one, or commemorate a special occasion, naming a seat is a perfect way to memorialize a dance memory. Naming a seat also makes a great gift!

TAKE YOUR SEAT: Don't miss your chance!0%

The seating in our in-studio “black box” performance space is pull-out bleacher-style seats. Each seat has a space for a plaque 4″ wide x 2″ tall. The plaques have a matte black finish and are engraved with silver lettering.

Your inscription can be 27 characters per line (including spaces) up to 3 lines.

Below are some idea samples for what you might put on a plaque:

If you have a special story connected to your naming of a seat, please share it in the Comments field. We would like to create a collection of stories to use as part of the TYSOD|RDT archives – please let us know if your story is private.

*Seat sponsorship and naming is subject to availability and review.
