Choreographer Dana Foglia is creating a new non-stop show "I am...We are..." for the Manhattan Movement and Arts Center in NYC.
The "I'M… WE ARE's" TOTAL BUDGET IS $33,000…
We are so excited to reach our Kickstarter goal of $8,400 to secure at least initial production costs; we all can't begin to explain how much everyone's support has meant to us. We are so excited for this show!!! Thank you!!!
Now anything extra we can fund over the next hours will go towards improved sound and light equipment and most importantly these amazing dancers who have been doing this strictly based on their passion and love and they deserve the very best! I am overwhelmed with the outreach of support for "I am...We are..." I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of the re-post, re-tweets, and love!
Thank you for becoming part of our team. See you at the show!

ABOUT THE SHOW
' I am...We are...' is a fearless follow-up to my latest show "We are the Works in Progress" , which premiered in Los Angeles in November to sold-out crowds. This time around we are back at the Manhattan Movement and Arts Center in NYC, where my company did their very first full length production "Vatic". Im using this show to further expand on certain concepts such as rolling chairs, soccer balls, markers, tape,as well as pieces that have become "staple" to Dana Foglia Dance's repertoire.The goal is to bring our passion of movement to the stage, transfix the audience and take them on a very unique journey. Each and everytime I am creating work, whether large or small, I am improving and building upon my vocabulary and allowing me to become more and more fearless. In turn this is creating positive outlets for my dancers, who are so strong and very unique individuals.
ABOUT THE COMPANY
Futuristic, athletic, fearless, mesmerizing, super human dancing. All of these words have been used to describe Dana Foglia and her company. Artistic Director/Choreographer, Dana Foglia is truly the cutting edge of commercial hip hop and contemporary fusion. She and her dancers bring incredible classical technique with strength, raw street styles and sophisticated nuance. With her visionary artistic direction, Dana takes the audience to another place, allowing them to feel something almost unimaginable, transfixing them and always leaving them wanting more. From studying at the Ailey School to touring the world with Beyonce, Dana's experience as a performer has always been wonderfully diverse. Her company shares this great depth in their theatricality and artistic mentality.
GOALS WITH FUNDING
My kickstarter goal is to raise $8,400 to pay for the initial costs of putting on'I am...We are...'. Funds will go towards: theatre rental, lighting design, costume design, props,promotional materials and rehearsal space. Reaching my $8,400 goal will assist me to cover the initial production costs of 'I am...We are...'.
Although this will be a great start in funding, the entire cost of putting on this premiere production is $33,000. Please join me in supporting these artists for their time, talent and artistry. They are dancing for me because they are passionate artists and believe in this company and they deserve the very best.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
I will be truly grateful for any amount given towards the creation of this show! Reaching this goal will enable me to see my vision brought to life in hopes to tour with this show in the future. Thank you in advance for your support in making this dream come alive!
"I am...We are..." Premieres February 1st and 2nd at The Manhattan Movement and Arts Center.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
One particular challenge that is faced when I have put on full length shows at this venue is lighting. I change the typical performance space around and create a larger area in a round feel. This causes some major technical issues because lights are not hung on one whole side of the space. It is something that is possible with a ton of time and a really cool lighting designer! :)
