We are preparing our first full-evening concerts of brand new repertory and re-developed works. Please give a push to help us succeed!

Thank you for coming to our Kickstarter page! You could be spending your precious time on the internet doing 8 trillion other things - in fact, I'm sure some of you won't read past this paragraph - but that’s ok! Go enjoy your time on Tumblr, Youtube, or wherever you are. The fact that even some of you are interested in becoming a part of our project, though, means the world to us. Thank you all so much! 

Welcome to our Kickstarter! Below is the short and sweet version of our deal in this kickstarter campaign and what we're up to! Please come back because we'll be posting more updates, info, thank you's and other exciting stuffs along the way!

We're in the process of creating our first full length concerts right now. So far I think we're creating the best original material we ever have. I'm so proud of our group of dancers and with the talent and chemistry we have cooking, we are going so much deeper and further with the movement than ever before, and I'm ecstatic for you to see and experience it all. We just came off of our Winter Season, which included sold-out standing room only performances and fantastic feedback about our newest premiere. However, as always - there's a catch. 

Our last season's performances were fantastic, yet the majority were unpaid. Going into this next rehearsal process, we need to be able to prepare our dances the way that YOU deserve to see them. Without financial support, we won't have the needed resources for necessary rehearsals, production costs, and performance stipends. These financial concerns are worth it to live our dream, but every little bit helps and is needed to continue! $25 pays for 2 hours of precious rehearsal time. $50 goes towards the creation of a new costume, $100 helps support our dancers, and that's just the tip of the ice---well, you know. Every cent goes towards the company's productions!

What we're asking for here, is some support from you - our friends, family, and fans. We've come a long way having performed in France, Scotland, at Bryant Park, Baryshnikov Arts Center, and Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater to name some opportunities, and with this Kickstarter our leap into the next phase of development becomes possible. With the work we've done in the past few years and our future plans for creative and administrative growth, we now have the chance to become a sustainable, consistent, touring company (with your push)! And we've thought hard to create some pretty cool rewards for your generous donations. You can read them all on the side!

Growing a dance company is challenging, but nothing feels better than sharing the experience of dance with friends and communities worldwide. Every detail of every moment is felt, thought about, and nurtured as much for you as it is for us, and together I think we can show the world that it’s possible to create awesome movement as independent artists!

We can't say it enough, but thank you....

Yours Truly,
