The Arts Mentorship Program (AMP) provides creative guidance, mentorship, and financial support to young and emerging performing artists in the greater Santa Barbara Area.   AMP helps artists build physical and emotional confidence and find a healthy outlet for expression.  AMP has a unique partnership with the community minded for-profit Santa Barbara Dance Arts, and together we are able to reach over 10,000 residents annually through our core programs: Scholarship Mentor Program, Rent Subsidy Program, and Student Dance Companies.  We create opportunities for growth, and access to our new state-of the-art Performing Arts Center.   The 9,000 square foot center is a hub for the community and offers 5 studios, a performance space, homework lounge with wifi, café, The Dance Store, and the AMP administrative offices.
