DIVERSE SPACE YOUTH GOES INTERNATIONAL

Diverse Space Youth Dance Theatre has been invited to perform at the 12th Irish Youth Dance Festival on June 30th and July 1st, 2012. We are producing a Gala performance to invite potential sponsors for our trip to Dublin. We are asking for $3,000 to cover a portion of the production costs, which include costumes, technical support, venue rental, publicity, choreographer and music composers.

Our Kick-Starter goal is only $3,000 because the Kickstarter rule is that if the pledges don’t reach the goal you have set, you get nothing! But we will receive any funds that exceed our goal, so please keep donating!!

We are working with Toni Bravo, our director, to create two new choreographies to present at the festival, with original music composed by a local musician, Chris Gebhard. Ms. Bravo is also preparing a new piece for the Dublin Youth Dance Theatre (DYDC) to perform at the Festival. These pieces will be performed at the Gala!

All of our kick-start supporters will be invited to our Gala at Ballet Austin on Monday, May 28th from 5 to 8 PM, where we will perform the choreographies prepared for Dublin. The names of all of our sponsors will be listed in the program. Our Parent Company, DSDT, will join us in performing excerpts from our last concert! There will also be a fabulous silent auction at the gala.

We really hope you will support our endeavor and help us represent the Austin dance community proudly!
