Born out of the suggestion from Kristin Drauker to gather all our friends together in a single performance, our first show was held at the Museo El Barrio in February 2012 including a cast of stars from New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Dance Theatre of Harlem, the freelance dance community of New York, and David’s young students - a combination of talent that is nearly impossible to assemble for a single project. Such NYCB artists as Joaquin De Luz, Amar Ramasar, Ask La Cour, Chase Finlay, Gonzalo Garcia, and ABT’s Luciana Paris, Nicola Curry and Nicole Graniero performed David Fernandez’s works. We also presented the premiere of Vitruvian Man, a piece that has received international acclaim. The evening was a great experience for the dancers and audience alike. On April 28, we will replicate that diversity of performers with the excitement and camaraderie generated the first time around. Watch a demo of our last performance to get a taste of what’s to come!
For this Encore! show, expect new stars to the cast such as contemporary flamenco dancer Selene Muños from Denmark performing a duet with Ask La Cour, and original music by Ian Ng and Craig Chesler, two up-and-coming inspiring composers whose talented work we are so fortunate to include.
We can’t do this alone. We need your support to bring this fantastic show to the stage for your enjoyment. Help us cover the expenses, including the theater, rehearsal space, costumes, lighting designer, reception, and other related production costs. Please make your contribution to help make "Some Dance Company - Encore!" a reality!
Thank you !!

Risks and challenges
From the planning, casting, and rehearsal schedule to all other elements leading up to the performance, every aspect costs money. Everyone who has contributed thus far is on board to see our project to its completion. The challenge, then, is to raise sufficient funding to cover the production costs. We’ve met this challenge before and succeeded! Thanks to the supportive Kickstarter community we raised $6,345.00 for our first show, and we feel confident that we will receive that same support this time.
You have our sincerest thanks for your help, and we will see you on April 28th!
