We Need Your Support!

Posted on Friday September 2nd, 2016

Dear Friends,

As we enter our season, “Be. Here. Now.” we are reaching out to you to say we truly hope you will attend and share the work we have created with passion and enthusiasm throughout the year! 

If you cannot attend, our upcoming Postino fundraiser, but would like to show your support of the company, we invite you to donate to match some of the funding we have received this year from the Arts Commission and Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture as well as Scottsdale League for the Arts, to fulfill our season.

Movement Source will touch many lives this year. Our energetic dancers, will be teaching workshops to youth at Phoenix Day School for the Deaf and at Scottsdale Prevention Institute this year- sharing the joy of dance. Dance builds self-esteem and confidence in these youth as well as creates a great deal of opportunity to exercise and awaken creativity. Our company offers classes to the public with our Monday night weekly open company class.  Movement Source has provided opportunities for not only audience members and students, but for many dancers in our state to take class and perform. We are lucky this season to have videographer, Stephen Perry, making a documentary on the company – what keeps us ticking, insights into the workings of a local modern dance company with staying power, what each dancer gets from the experience and how we bring dance into our community in various capacities.

 We are creating pieces based on being present, looking at technology and our ever-changing world and how being in the moment affects us as humans and as artists. This season, we brought in Brad Garner, guest artist from Oregon, to set work on the company as well as produced in-house choreography.

We appreciate you supporting Movement Source, a 501c3 non profit, grass roots dance company that has been devoted to bringing inspiring dance through performance and education to our valley for over 26 years.  Thank you for considering making a gesture of support for dance in Arizona, and for Movement Source as a company impacting our community.
