YOU HELP DANCE EXPRESS:
* GROW OUR PROGRAMS
* EXPAND OUR CAPACITY TO SERVE
* ESTABLISH A HOME BASE FOR LONG-TERM SUSTAINABILITY
Dance Express is an inclusive dance company founded in Fort Collins in 1989 to bring the joy of dance to people of all abilities.
OUR MISSION is to IMPROVE LIVES THOUGH DANCE and we directly serve persons with and without disabilities in northern Colorado and we reach beyond the region with our messages that normalize and value inclusion; enhance creative expression; facilitate access to the arts; and help individuals to contribute meaningfully and purposefully to our culture.
In these current times of transition, in addition to experiencing the external changes in our society and the world, we are feeling internal changes as we accommodate and re-orient to the new normal. Your support for Dancing Beyond 2020 will:
1. build our capacity to expand beyond the core troupe;
2. pay staff to grow our inclusive programs;
3. fund collaborations on new dance works;
4. support community outreach with positive messages of inclusion despite isolation;
5. enable Dance Express to convert to virtual methodology, as needed, for teaching, rehearsing, and producing dance events for the community; and,
6. if fully successful, allow us to establish a home-base as an anchor for the future.
Dance Express envisions that people with disabilities will participate in dance and the performing arts over the course of their lifetimes....well beyond 2020.
Help us reach more individuals and groups to spread the joy of Dance Express into tomorrow. Thank you and bless you.
