24 Hours to Go!
Friends, as of 10pm tonight, this campaign will be at the 24 hour mark! We couldn't be happier with how well the campaign has done so far--we've thrown an incredible party, already surpassed our goal, and earlier this week our Kickstarter contact Stephanie featured our project as a case study at a DeVos Institute for Arts Management lecture attended by many of NYC's dance-supporting institutions! We feel so grateful for all the love and support!
That being said, we're maximalists. We're addicted giving 200%, surpassing goals, selling out, shouting louder, and making work that keeps pushing itself to be edgier, smarter, more. It's in our blood, it's the reason we've already gotten so far, and it's the reason we'll keep pushing for these last 24 hours to see how far we can go!
We've added three new prizes (VIP tickets to our premier at $20 and $40, plus an extra prize for repeat donors) and we'd love to invite you to be maximalists with us! Anything you can do to help spread the word in these last 24 hours is massively appreciated: facebook it! tweet it! mention it to a friend!
Every penny over our goal goes directly to increasing our dancer pay, so you can feel good knowing you're supporting two hard years of work by our four amazing dancers.
Again, THANK YOU for your support - we couldn't be more proud to have you on our team. Onwards!
Lovealways, Sarah A.O. + the AOMC
