Founded in 2006, Collective Soles Arts Group originally focused on the promotion of dance in the Tampa community and beyond through performances, lecture demonstrations and outreach workshops. Since then, we’ve expanded to include all areas of the performing arts, including musical theatre, as well as providing an arts-based education enrichment program.

The Moving to Read Program seeks to promote literacy by integrating storytelling, dance and movement.

CSAG provides students from the Jansen Dance Project and other community organizations with performing opportunities for these programs. For more information on any of our programs and resources, please contact us.

Collective Soles Arts Group consists of the Arts Center, the pre-professional performance group, Collective Soles Youth Ensemble (CSYE) and the professional dance company - Collective Soles Dance (CSD).

Our History

Our Mission Statement:

Collective Soles Arts Group is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) performing arts organization dedicated to enriching the lives of young people through involvement in the performing arts.  Our mission is to promote the art of dance to the Tampa community and beyond.  Through professional performances,  lecture demonstrations and outreach workshops, we wish to make dance accessible to the young and the young at heart.


To promote and support the arts community of the Tampa Bay area, a studio space was recently renovated and made available as a black box theater space for local productions. With optional, provided light and sound equipment and flexible audience seating, the space is available for local businesses, artists and arts organizations to use. Eligible organizations may apply for a box office split arrangement to mitigate productions.


Studio spaces are also available for rent by local businesses, artists and arts organizations for classes and meetings.
