    Thea Barnes dedicated her life to the art of Dance. She graced audiences internationally with her bold, strong, yet gentle presence. To keep her legacy alive, the "Thea Barnes Legacy Fund” has been set up to support the work of current and future artists in dance and performing arts. By funding and mentoring these artists we believe that we will be creating opportunities for them to contribute to keeping the industry vibrant, diverse, innovative and inspiring for future generations to come. Thea taught and transferred her knowledge to assist others in gaining from their own learning experience. One of these artists is Duane Cyrus, who highlighted the importance of giving to others, he expressed how he "learned from [Thea] that being an artist is not about what you can get––it is about giving to others.

    Any donation, large or small, would be of great help.
