LaceySassoDance's total budget is $2,000… We are excited to reach our Kickstarter goal. This will secure production costs; theatre rental, set and costumes. Additionally: PR, rehearsal space and compensate our dancers for their 5 months of rehearsal time. This project covers the costs only, any extra can be sought to give to a local charity. With your support and love I know we can do it, we can hit the goal with only 20 days to go until show time! In advance thank you from the bottom of our hearts from everyone at LaceySassoDance
About the show:
You may have loved without commitment being returned, you may have felt that bright hope and joy of a new love forming, or you maybe so lucky to have experienced the fullest kind of love; commitment, passion and intimacy. Love In Motion is an expressive interpretation of Sternberg’s psychological model of love. You will be guided through an emotional journey that will show the very rawest forms of love, an expose of personal journeys, an ode to real life through articulated movement.
About the Company:
My mission is to create work that is informed by psychological theory as well as autobiographical experiences. LaceySassoDance, founded in 2014, creates innovative contemporary dance that blends sassy jazz and heartfelt gestures with unexpected rhythmic interpretations. The company has a holistic approach to choreography and performance. Creating healthy dancers inside and out, is an integral part of the company process.

Goals with funding:
My kickstarter goal is to raise $2,000 to pay for the costs of putting on Love in Motion. Funds will go towards: theatre rental, lighting design, sound design, music composer, costume design, rehearsal space and minimal artist’s salaries.
Risks and challenges
I am all at once nervous and proud. In just a few short weeks, this show has come together. In September, when most companies are getting into their regular rehearsal schedule, I was contemplating if I would create anything at all. By December I was in the studio with two of my dancers creating a duet and experimenting with ideas surrounding love styles and Sternberg’s triangular love theory. As the work started coming together, I realized that I really wanted to produce a season and introduce my own work for the first time as an independent choreographer and artistic director of LaceySassoDance.
How you can help:
I would be truly grateful for any amount given towards this production of Love in Motion. Reaching this goal will enable me to see my vision brought to life. It has been a life long ambition for me to have my own company, and to bring to life my first show as a company director – a show I truly care about.
A note from Lacey:
Thank you in advance for taking time and investing in my dream. Without you it would not be possible. Whether its $7 or $250 I am so extremely grateful and humbled by your help.
