Cradle to Grave Arts, a 501c3 nonprofit, was formed in 1991 by Hannah Dennison and a board of community supporters as an artist-initiated organization. It evolved in 2010 to its present form whose purpose is both artistic and educational with three concentrations: to support the creative process of the director and participating artists in the field of contemporary dance; to promote the art form through various educational and community settings; and to advance the community of dance artists in the region.

During its twenty plus years of activity, Cradle to Grave Arts has flourished, attracting a growing, varied audience. In most public presentations, partnerships are formed with other civic organizations. The four dance artists (Ellen Smith Ahern, Selene Colburn, Hannah Dennison, Lida Winfield) currently on the board have received community, state, regional, and national recognition.

Cradle to Grave Arts board members are:
Ellen Smith Ahern, Emily Boedecker, Selene Colburn, Hannah Dennison, Janet Ressler, Lida Winfield. Hannah Dennison is the Director.
