11th Anniversary Season
In 2018, we chose to cease creating dance productions to focus on making sure our dance artists are paid for their rehearsal AND performance time. Our dance artists put in 360 rehearsal hours per show collectively and should be paid for their hard work and dedication. We have produced 6 dance productions and it would not be possible without the sacrifices our dancers have made to attend rehearsals. They are moms, students, spouses, and humans who deserve to be paid for their valuable time. We are asking that you contribute to our Dance Artist Fund today as we seek to revive our dance company by January 2020.
Thanks to your support we were on schedule set to revive the company with rehearsals scheduled to start March 13. However, COVID-19 has disrupted our plans and we continue to wait for the grand revival of our company.
Please continue to support our overall goal of $25,000 to create a small endowment for the purpose of paying our dance artists for many years to come. All too often we hear of major, regional dance companies closing due to not having a funding structure set up to support the artists, this is especially a threat now. We want to change our narrative and do better by our dancers. Thank you for your support of our wonderful dance artists of Greensboro, NC!
As the world moved online, we hesitated and decided to wait, until we saw the moving video of Ailey Dancers still dancing from their living rooms, in parks, with their families, and their pets to the world-famous opening of "Revelations". From there we decided we need to keep creating, keep dancing, and keep moving through all of this.
The Conquering COVID-19 Series is made to uplift, inspire, and empower our community during these difficult times. The series launched on April 22. It's a collection of dance films, classes, and interviews available on Youtube, Facebook Watch, and IGTV. Be sure to follow us to keep up and join our mailing list so you know when we release new episodes.
If you view any of the videos, please consider a donation of $1 - $25 to continue to support our dance production company.
