DanceWell Season Three Fundraiser

So far, DanceWell Podcast  has created 50 episodes in 2 season. We've interviewed countless experts on a vast array of important topics related health and wellness for dancers. And, we've given all of this to you for FREE!

DanceWell Podcast continues to be a labor of love. We are passionate about keeping dancers healthy--it’s what we’ve devoted our lives to--and we really enjoy interviewing experts and sharing their knowledge with you, our sizable and world-wide audience.  We're excited to say that we have another batch of informative, high quality interviews lined up for Season 3.

Additionally,  we've created a new feature to our work: we've just launched a research study that explores general trends of dancer well-being. We want to know how dancers feel about their overall well-being, and what issues most concern them. We believe that this information is important for shaping our work, but also, for informing other research in the field and other services that are available to dancers. Come talk to us about our results at the International Association for Dance Medicine and Science's Annual Conference in Canada this October!

Over the past couple of years, we have grown thanks to the generosity of many of our listeners. Now, as we gear up for Season 3, we’re looking to you for additional support. We have a few expenses that we need our valued audience to chip in for:

•Annual SoundCloud Membership
•Website Fee and Upgrade Costs
•Research and Presentation Fees
•Branding and Marketing Materials 
•Research Intern

DanceWell Podcast is a free resource, no dues or subscription needed to listen. In exchange for the informative content you get from us, would you please consider making a donation to help us bring Season 3 to fruition, build our listenership, and explore dancer well-being? Our goal is $2000, and any amount (big or small) is helpful in meeting that number. Those of you able to contribute $40 or more, will receive these perks:

•$40, DanceWell magnet
•$50, DanceWell will give you a 15 second shout out on our next episode! We'd be happy to promote your up-coming show, website, or project
•$100, DanceWell tote bag

We are infinitely grateful for the positive support we have received from all of you within our community, and we look forward to bringing you heaps of helpful content in Season 3!
