Dear Beloved Community,
For the last time as a student, I will be heading back to Ponderosa Movement and Discovery.

Last year was amazing! I came back with so much information. Opportunities just sprung up!
-Performed a piece about my grandmother experiences at 15 (video included)
-Curator a piece about Septa (public transportation)
-Will meet with the one of the directors of Walter Reed Arts in a few weeks (http://arts.gov/partnerships/walter-reed)
-Co-curating a piece call the 5 Black Women Locs Project happening at the end of June

This time around, I will be doing the Performance and Choreography Modules (http://www.ponderosa-dance.de/en/porch/porch-performance-module.html, http://www.ponderosa-dance.de/en/porch/porch-choreographic-module.html) from July 14-August 31st. 
Performance module will entail creating and presenting new work
everyday as a way to work with the central nervous system. Choreography module will showing work in progress and then present it in Berlin, Germany.

I need your help in making this a reality...consider your donation as paying it forward. No amount is too small or large. Will use the experience for creating performances, working at Walter Reed Arts (crossing my fingers), coaching, and teaching.

I'm contributing to this endeavor as well through day jobs, artistic jobs, contract jobs, contacting grant agencies, etc. Also I am doing work exchange this time which has cut down the cost.  You can contribute through this secure page, or you can send directly to the organization (http://www.ponderosa-dance.de/en/contact.html(please let them know that it is for my room and board), or you can send it to my address.
Address: 916 S 48th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19143

Room and board remaining balance: $2700.00
Deadline April 29, 2014

All the best,
Kimya
