Dallas – At the Wyly Theatre on Monday night, The Arts Community Alliance (TACA) handed out a total of $1.3 million to 46 arts groups, the most money TACA has given to local arts organizations in its history.

Avant Chamber Ballet, Bruce Wood Dance Project, Texas Ballet Theater and Dallas Black Dance Theatre were among the 46 arts groups.

“We are elated to have surpassed our fundraising goal for TACA’s 2014 distribution,” said Nancy Carlson, Chairman of TACA’s Board of Directors in a news release. “Distributing the largest dollar amount in TACA history is a meaningful accomplishment and speaks to the commitment and support of so many individuals, companies and foundations that make it possible.”

TACA’s grants awarded this cycle will help support more than 5,000 performances that approximately 1.2 million people will attend. Ranging from $5,000 to $110,000, TACA grants are being awarded to a varied group of North Texas’ performing arts organizations, from the very large and established to the newly emerging, according to the news release.
