First Position: This is:
A serious proposal! A choreographed pledge drive to make a real dance performance! May 12th at 7:30 and May 13th at 2. American Dance Institute.
Tzveta is part of the Metro Incubator Series at ADI this year which means we cats of Danceville have been rehearsing really hard in Rockville, thanks to the fine folks who saw fit to provide us with free rehearsal space between some walls and a heart-soft place. The spotlight is on Tzveta (holder of three Masters degrees and recent winner of FOUR dance/metro dc awards!), but we like to share. The spotlight that is. So, we are offering you the opportunity to take center stage in this production with your support.
A cornucopia of seasons. A bouquet of international spices...spicier than gluhwein! Good smellier than the cherry blossoms. (Except when we smell like rehearsal sweat.) We are lunging, jumping, spinning, goliath-ing, mammoth jamming, and pint-sized patrolling. What? We are dancing our booties off to make cool art-house art dance! We are working day jobs to dance by the moonlight. For you!
Jump Around: You can make like a Tzveta too:
Tzveta likes to make things with her hands. Her productions are tailor made from thread to music scale; improvisation score to mind-twirling choreography. She likes to jump around. You can jump around too by making a contribution to our campaign to raise $3,000 to cover expenses like set supplies, performer fees, and music production. And to help us eat more brownies. We can be a demanding bunch about asking for Tzveta's homemade brownies, when what she really needs is more time and money to make costumes. But, her brownies are so good.
About that follow spot:
So, we are asking you to pitch in so we can share an incredible dance with you. It's about nostalgia for a perfect moment. It's about love. It's about learning to piece a puzzle together and mitigate a missing heartbeat. It's about anticipating and negotiating a clear path. It's about you! What? Don't you dance about these things in the privacy of your own kitchen, too? We thought so! So, yeah, it's also about you!
Every donation will go toward our creation of a rarified world in which you will want to linger. Longer. We promise. (Ok, there will also be brownies in it for you.) So, from far and wide to up close and personal, we would love you to become part of this project with your support in person, in finance, in kind. The dance is also about Fall. Can you help us land softly?
