OUR MISSION & VISION
Welcome! The mission of the MKHS Dance Company Boosters is to provide performing arts enrichment opportunities through financial support and sponsorship of the Mark Keppel High School Dance Company. We also advocate for dance arts programs in the city of Monterey Park (California). We are a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
The Monterey Park community is severely lacking resources for dance education & enrichment. The MKHS dance program is currently the only option for youth to engage with the dance arts. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution or business sponsorship so that we can continue to provide affordable access to dance instruction for the youth in our local community.

As a sub-division of the Visual & Performing Arts department, students at Mark Keppel High School are provided the opportunity to take dance classes from beginning through advanced levels of proficiency. Courses are aligned with the State of California VPA content standards in Dance. The school’s dance department is also chartered by the National Honors Society for Dance Arts.
