Dance Project Launches Ambitious Fundraising Challenge!

July 3, 2014 § 1 Comment


greendancer2Dance Project, one of Greensboro’s longest-running dance organizations, is launching a fundraising campaign for the month of July. Between July 1 and July 31, the organization is seeking the community’s help in raising $10,000 to close a budget gap and ensure Dance Project’s future vitality. This fundraising drive is crucial to Dance Project’s ability to run our programs this year.

The Dance Project has secured a donor who has agreed to match the $10,000 if the full amount is raised, bringing the total to $20,000! To meet this ambitious challenge, Dance Project seeks donations and corporate sponsorships for its programs. Donations may be made through the Dance Project website ( or by mail (200 N. Davie St. #7, Greensboro, NC 27403).

“We believe strongly in providing access to dance to all segments of the population and have always worked hard to cultivate a vibrant dance community in North Carolina,” says Artistic Director Jan Van Dyke, “but if we are not able to meet our goal, many of our programs are in jeopardy.”

For 25 years, the Dance Project has been making history in North Carolina, creating the North Carolina Dance Festival, the only state-wide touring festival of its kind, presenting professional modern dance in Greensboro through the Van Dyke Dance Group, and running one of the few non-profit dance schools in the area, the School at City Arts. Dance Project’s programming creates the foundation necessary for supporting NC dance and dancers now and in the future, and benefits the local and statewide community by raising awareness of modern dance and helping to educate the next generation of North Carolina dancers and viewers. Dance Project also employs many of the state’s dance choreographers, performers, and teachers through our artistic and educational programs.

“We are excited about our upcoming 2014-15 season,” says Van Dyke; the season includes two separate concerts by the Van Dyke Dance Group, the 24th season of the NC Dance Festival, and new class, workshop, and camp offerings through the School, in addition to extensive outreach programs in schools, retirement communities, and community centers. “We believe that a successful fundraising campaign now will allow us to fulfill our mission—to nurture a statewide community of dance artists, audiences, and students—this year and beyond.”
