      Thank you Hayley! Nothing against our male artists but it is necessary to give focus and thanks to our girls and women in the culture.

      I know a lot of dancers but the ones that usually get mentioned and talked about are they guys and it is so refreshing to see you guys pushing the boundaries and giving female dancers a proper title, especially in Hip-Hop!

      Good luck with the show this year x

      Hi Vaneessa! Thank you so much for the inspirational words and the pledge. Every pledge does really count. Thank you for taking out time to read and understand the rewards as well. The idea to give things that leave an impression on the body, mind and soul! Not to give things that might get tossed. You get it! You get us! and thanks for the support. Sincerely.
      -Michele

      Congratulations you guys, what an awesome project! I wish I had the funds to "Adopt-a-dancer," but I'm happy to at least have made a small contribution. I love the voice and empowerment and fun and energy. Yes! Take back the voice of this enormously important artform from the misogynistic tones we so often hear. Love, love, love this project.

      Also, as someone who's interested in Accessible Experiences, rather than Scarce Objects, I LOVE that all your "Pledge Rewards" are virtual things, video and other non-object-based experiences and not trinkets for the landfill.

      It's cliche... but so true...
      YOU GO GRRLS!!!
