The House Inc. is proud to announce our new center location and expansion of programming! Madison's urban arts community can now call The House Inc. (THI) home. Our facility operates classes Monday-Friday for youth ages 4-18, as well as adult health and wellness courses.

THI is the very first of its kind in the Dane County and surrounding areas to offer underserved communities’ access to performing arts trainings and much more.


You may have heard about our programs in the past. In 2007 our dance team was on BET (Black Entertainment Television) National LIVE sitcom 106nPark Dance Competition. Our dance company won 1st place on live television.


We have also graced the campaign trails of Barack Obama, Overture Center of the Arts, MyArts, Kohls Center Badgers Basketball Games and much more, right here in Dane County area.





Our 2022 budget allowed us to cover five part time directors & teaching staff, one year mortgage for our center, and all performing arts activities and productions.


We are a for-artist by-artist facility meaning, all programs are led by artists. We plan rehearsals, arrange fundraisers, make costumes, choreograph, and operate the center on a 50% volunteer basis.


In 2019 we managed to fundraise $32,000. This was just enough to pay for our center for the 2022 season. All other expenses were covered by donors, staff, close family and friends.


This season, we are hoping to minimize costs for the dancers by gaining sponsors who believe in us. Urban performing arts has never been considered in this community before, but we work just as hard, train just as hard, and operate at a full capacity for our students and families.


We all have a passion for the future of urban arts in this community and we would like to invite you to be a part of it!

Why Should You Donate Now?

Data shows that African American youth fall well below the achievement gap versus their fellow peers. THI is combating this issue with its programming by giving black and brown youth an outlet to express their whole selves through performing arts. By supporting us you will help change the narrative of Wisconsin leading in second place for the worst state for African American students.
