Performance Update and a Warm, Loving Thank You!

Posted by Robin Becker Dance (Creator)


We are so humbled by all of our generous pledgers!  Not only did we make our goal, but we surpassed it by an extra 17%! We cannot express our heart felt gratitude enough.  You have all helped us to ensure a future of Into Sunlight.  

We had  extremely successful performances last weekend at Stony Brook University and at Holy Trinity Diocesan High School.  The students of Holy Trinity who performed with the company really shined and added a new element of growth, renewal and energy into the piece.  We had a talk back discussion with David Maraniss, Catherine Murphy, Paul Scolieri, Robin Becker, and cast after each performance. Following the talk backs, a flag ceremony was held outside in front of the high school where 150 American flags were placed in honor of veterans.  It was a beautiful sight to see these flags blowing in the wind as you passed by the school.  

Ching was there with her video equipment to finish the documenting of this process so that she can put together a video that can be sent other Universities and schools alike of Into Sunlight and its interdisciplinary and educational program, in hopes of bringing Into Sunlight to their school.

Without out your support, we would not be where we are today.  On behalf of everyone involved with Into Sunlight, we thank you with all our heart.

We are very excited to continue to update you with our journey!

With love and gratitude,

Robin Becker Dance
