We are built to seek out connection. Our souls are wired to search for meaning. Our bodies are designed to move to music. Every time we come together to dance, we Reconnect with our bodies, find community and we feel alive.
In this surreal moment in history – being together is suddenly not possible. Finding meaning seems unreachable. We are imagining what our lives would be like without dance.
Every April, Art as Action reaches out and asks for donations to support our small and mighty non-profit. It is a crucial part of our annual budget to raise money through crowd-funding, and the money and energy generated fuel us to continue Redefining Dancer and bringing Dance for EveryBODY to people with and without chronic illness/(dis)ability through the Denver Metro area.
This April, everything seems completely unfamiliar and uncertain. We are separated from our families, from our communities, from the very connections that make us human. And we are reminded just how vital DANCE is to our lives.
We dance because it brings us JOY.
We dance because it brings us HEALING.
We dance because it brings us TOGETHER.
The theme for our 2020 performance season is “ADAPT.” When we chose this theme a couple of months ago, we had no idea how much life would imitate art. As a physically integrative dance company, our organization and our dancers have an amazing track record for agility and resilience. Every Monday and Wednesday, we are still coming together to dance, but from the safety our own homes through Zoom. We can’t wait to be together again in person and create our “ADAPT” show – it is the way we will find meaning and share it with our audience.
We invite you to join us in finding meaning during this difficult time. Open your heart and your wallet to support Art as Action and feel RECONNECTED to your own humanity. Your donation makes it possible for our organization to survive this difficult time and DANCE another day.
