Hi Friends,

EPIC Motion is putting on our 5th annual spring production, and we need your help! In 2011, with the amazing support of the Kickstarter community right here, we were able to create our first ever spring production to a humble audience at Peridance Capezio Center in Manhattan. We are very thankful to have had that opportunity to grow and have been doing our best ever since to make the most of your investment in us. This year, we are excited to be bringing our show to a new, larger venue for the first time. Although we're a little nervous about the increased costs, nothing is more rewarding for us as dancers than to be able to share our passion for movement with more and more of the community.

Our dancers are incredibly talented and hard-working, and while none of us are paid for our dedication, we come to late night rehearsals three times per week with enthusiasm after full days of work or school. Currently, this production is entirely self-funded and we are reaching out for ANY amount of support, big or small, to make our vision come true! In return, we want to give you the best show yet, as well as all our sincerest gratitude. Thank you so much!!

WHAT YOUR DONATION WOULD HELP FUND

  • Show venue for 2 nights - $6,000
  • Rehearsal space (170 hours) - $3,400
  • Lighting, sound, videographer - $600

Total cost of show: ~$10,000

ABOUT OUR SHOW "EPIKOS"

There are many tales of how our universe came to be, yet those passed down by the Greeks have resonated for generations. Tales of love, fear, chaos, and power—each speaks to a different aspect of human nature and our relation to the world around us. Embark on a journey where the myths of Ancient Greece come to pass once again. 

EPIC Motion Dance Company is proud to present its 5th annual spring production "επικός (Epikos)." Join us for a night of inspiration and witness the artistic vision and creative works of our company.

WHEN: May 9 @ 8pm | May 10 @ 7pm
WHERE: The Riverside Theatre | New York, NY 10027

Risks and challenges

We've secured the venue and lighting designer, our dancers have finished learning all their pieces, costumes have been finalized, and we're in the process of producing more photo-shoot and video content to capture the full artistic vision of our show. The biggest challenge for us now is getting funding—if our ticket sales aren't high enough, we may not make back enough to cover all the costs of the show. That's why your help means so much to us. THANK YOU!
