We are 20 years old!
Donations towards Our Build It Up Campaign provide money we need for our upcoming 20th Anniversary Performance Series , Return To Form, on February 1 & 2, 2020.
Why is our 20th Anniversary Project special?
We will engage our community in a variety of ways:
* Expressive performances that push the boundaries of Aerial Dance
* Performances by Alumni dancers
* Invitations to students to Perform in a Preshow
* $1 Tickets for Children under 18

Ways to contribute:
Individual Donor - $20 and up
Give any amount of $20 or more to help edge us closer to our fundraising goal - $1 for each year we have been dancing!
Your name will be included in our printed program.
Tickets-for-Children Sponsor - $60 increments
Donate in $60 increments ($60/$120/$180, etc.) and your name will be printed on each child's ticket you support. When making your donation, specify you want your donation to go towards a $1 Ticket that allows a child to see the show. NOTE: $1 Child tickets will be available to adults who purchase a full-price ticket. $60 covers the actual per-seat cost of doing our February performances.
Trapeze Team Sponsor - total team donation of $250 and up
Gather a team of sponsors together for a total donation of $250 and the name of your team will be placed on a trapeze.

All Trapeze Team Sponsors will receive updates on what their trapeze is doing in the rehearsal and performance process including details about the dancers, costumes and music their trapeze is involved with. When you make your donation, simply include a note that your support is part of a Trapeze Team Sponsor and state your team's name.
