Your support helped us break ground. Join us as we build on our successes!
As we move into 2015 – our 29th year as a Company – we are actively taking our work in a new direction. Doug has always been fascinated by the correlations between art and movement (he frequently draws visuals of his dances as a creative tool), and this spring, will create a new work steeped in abstract visual art. Commissioned by the American Dance Festival, this new dance, entitled ReComposed, will be the cornerstone of an innovative touring model highlighting the process of creating and how that affects our everyday thinking. This program will serve as a pilot, which will then be brought to other venues and communities throughout the country in 2015-16.
You can help us make this happen.
Join the Commissioning Club for ReComposed
We are seeking to raise an additional $10,000 in support of the creation and production expenses for ReComposed; by joining the Commissioning Club, you will provide essential funding support and be named as a Commissioner of the work in perpetuity. Donation levels range from $500 to $2500 and Commissioners receive special perks and periodic updates as the work develops.
Contribute to the Annual Fund
Your one-time or annual gifts are an integral part of our budget. Support from donors like you makes up almost 25% of our budget each year, and provides an essential base of support, allowing us to maintain a high quality of artistic and educational programming year after year.
Become a Sustaining Donor
Our current sustaining donors provide us with a constant stream of funding that enables us to maintain daily operations both in our office and in the studio. This ongoing support enables us to focus on the creative, performance and educational work that have become a hallmark of Doug Varone and Dancers, making us a dance ambassador across the United States and the world.
As we approach the end of our fiscal year on June 30, 2015, we ask that you consider making a tax-deductible, year-end donation to Doug Varone and Dancers, or to make your support last all year, you can extend your support by pledging a sustaining gift of as little as $3 per month.
We will be honored to accept your gift in any amount. Your support directly benefits our work, whether you make your donation now or in monthly installments:
- $25 provides approximately one hour of rehearsal space in New York City
- $50 enables us to do a month’s worth of communications and e-marketing
