You are a part of Dance Exchange. We need your help to weather this crisis—and help others do the same.

About the Project

In the face of uncertainty, we are certain of one thing: Dance Exchange has so much to offer in a time when intergenerational connection, rigorous inquiry, and creative solutions are so desperately needed. 

Yet, when we made the difficult but necessary decision to protect the health of our communities and partners by suspending programming, temporarily closing our studio doors, and postponing major performances and projects, we felt an immediate, significant financial impact. 

And as we navigate these financial impacts, we are also finding ways to work with communities to continue expanding who gets to dance, where dance happens, what dance is about, and why dance matters—even, or especially, in the midst of this crisis.

Dance Exchange staff and artists need your support to continue to provide vital ways for people to connect, move, and make virtually. When you contribute today, your donation will be matched dollar-to-dollar and will help us imagine what’s possible when... 

  • Older adults can experience an interactive DX movement class online. 
  • Exchanges between older and younger movers happen via phone, video, email, or social media. 
  • Families have access to DX creative tools to learn and move at home. 
  • Virtual trainings allow teachers to build skills for embodied learning 
  • Hundreds of movers, makers, and business owners eventually return to Dance Exchange’s reopened Community and Creative Hub

In order for Dance Exchange to expand the ways we are working, and to reach communities virtually, it is vital that we maintain staff and are able to pay artists to lead this work. Your donation to Dance Exchange during this crisis will sustain our staff and artists as we work to advance what's possible now and in the future. We know we are among many organizations asking for your support right now, and we're honored to be part of a resilient arts ecosystem rising to the occasion of this incredible challenge to not only survive, but thrive.
