Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

One of our largest challenges is working in such a fantastically large space to create an atmosphere and transformative dance party experience designed by a team of skilled professionals.

Another challenge is ensuring that all of our 10 incredibly talented performance artists receive the support they need to create, produce and share their works effectively. This potentially includes costuming, lighting, sound and other tech assistance.

Our major obstacle is in putting on an event that is FREE and open to the public. Our production team has worked with reasonable budgets, barely-making-it budgets and two-penny-rubbed-together budgets they have always found a way to ignite community to support a shared experience. Without ticket sales to create revenue we have created a fantastic challenge to rally community to accomplish something undeniably magnetic and impossible to forget.
