Help Dance Prism Survive the Covid19 Crisis
***Update: Our GoFundMe campaign raised enough money to carry our fixed expenses through April and we could not be more humbled and grateful! Sadly, it looks unlikely that we will be able to perform in theaters for longer than we expected. If you didn’t get to donate or have the means to give again, we would be so grateful as our funding needs will continue into 2021
Dance Prism, a non-profit professional ballet company, is facing an existential crisis in this year of shared difficulty. Unable to perform, we are without income, yet the expenses necessary for our existence continue unabated.
The company’s been successfully self supporting since 1982 entirely by revenue from performances and small individual donations. We provide affordable family accessible productions outside metropolitan centers, as well as performance opportunities to younger dancers with no fees ever. But since Covid 19 forced us to cancel our entire spring and summer seasons and makes near future ones doubtful, we will have had no earned income for seven months, possibly for the entire year. Nonetheless our rent and related costs of maintaining the studio essential to our existence continue.
Without help toward the preservation of our studio, this remarkable entity is unlikely to survive the current year. We deeply appreciate any assistance you can offer.
