Dance into Deliverance is seeking funds to help empower upcoming trained artists who want to finish a work: 

In His Sight, Little Children: a commentary on Race in America.

In this piece we will be examining victim mentality, un-forgiveness, righteous anger, hate and love. We will also be deconstructing the complications of inter-racial relationships.The exploration of this piece will happen through the layers of dance, drama and film. It is a look into the after-trauma of a hate crime and the struggle to understand an identity despite history. The movement is visceral, violent, raw and sometimes stoic, and always contains an element of worship, or acknowledgment of the Creator. We are ready to finish this work!

 Dance into Deliverance is a dance company thats meant to be a bridge, by bringing artistic ideas of quality to the faith-based community. We were able to take steps towards the goal of delivering quality art, this summer by performing one of our pieces at a summer revival in Long Island, lead by gospel Grammy winning artist Donnie McClurkin. We also in our past season, honored to be able to  perform in the Amalgamate Artist Series, in New York City.

With $5,000 dollars, not only will we be able to complete our evening-length piece, we can also be funded for a full season. We can afford the following:

Rehearsal space, 

performance fees

 studio rentals for production shoots

costume and merchandise fees. 

Music Fees for video

Composer for the work 

Lets produce this work!

Risks and challenges

This project is a huge creative undertaking. Staying conscious of social and racial commentary, we as artists want to approach the subject of race from the perspective of our generation. We especially want to approach this subject because it is a huge issue in the body of Christ, it is still believed that Sunday morning in America is the most racially segregated time of the week, so I think it's important the we a conscious people approach this subject.

I understand that funding for independent artists isn't necessarily high on the radar. However, without the support of our generous donors, this project will lapse significantly in terms of progress. Rehearsal space, performance fees, costume construction, music composition and video production are all key in the development of this work. That being said, lets make the impossible, possible! Thank you!
