Dear Santa,
We’ve had a great year at Dance Project and we definitely think we deserve to be on your nice list this year! We raised over $10,000 in July with the help of donors and were able to receive a matching $10,000 from another generous donor to help put us back on solid footing!

We selected 5 amazing artists for NCDF’s 24th annual touring season.

Our fall semester is almost done–we had 7 amazing master classes and 2 performance opportunities for our youth and adult companies.

Don’t you think we deserve to be on the nice list? We do! Here’s a few things we’ve been dying for this Holiday season:

-Great new submissions for our 25th anniversary season of NCDF
-A working printer for Program Director Anne Morris; even though it is fun to go visit the School office every once in a while
-Exciting master class teachers for the new Spring series
Lots of new dancers in class and a copy of Misty Copeland’s book, Life in Motion: an Unlikely Ballerina for Ms. M (Assistant School Director Milanda McGinnis)
-Increased arts funding in the local, state, and national legislature
Adults to register for our newest class, Ballet For the Absolute Beginner, taught by Anne Morris
-New work by the Van Dyke Dance Group
-School Director Lauren Joyner wants t-shirts for our performance companies, new registration software, and a new sound system for studio 305
More generous supporters
-New costumes in the costume closet and a costume elf to help us keep them organized
-Artistic Director Jan Van Dyke wants more opportunities for staff expansion and better compensation for all their hard work!
-Another successful year cultivating the field of modern dance in North Carolina!

 

Oh, and a pony, please.

Thanks, Santa!
