Fund VISIONS Contemporary Ballet

Please consider contributing to VISIONS Contemporary Ballet  and help support this company of dedicated, amazingly talented dancers and Ranardo-Domeico Grays, Founder/Artistic Director/Choreographer, in the presentation of the company's annual concert in New York and  creation of "Queen of Soul" in dedication to  the late Aretha Franklin, being performed at the Charles Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit, Michigan!

Dear Friends and Family,

I am writing in hopes of raising funds in the amount of $5,000 by November 10th needed for expenses involved in presenting our fall concert in New York and the completion of my new piece "Queen of Soul," dedicated to Aretha Franklin, being performed at the Charles Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit, Michigan. Funds will help cover rehearsal space rental, dancers' rehearsal and performance stipends, theater rental, travel expenses, and technical and administrative costs.

Feature Article: Check it out! I was recently featured in The Field's Meet Our Artist  on September 1, 2019.

My Story:  As a brain cancer survivor, I feel that The Lord has given me the opportunity to present VISIONS Contemporary Ballet to the community with more focus and even more passion than ever.

After taking two years off for treatment I returned to VCB with even more of a story to share. Creatively flourishing, currently I am working on our fall program, Healing Works II, in which my newly completed work, Dash - Between, will be presented along with three other spiritually uplifting contemporary ballets.

As a native of Detroit, Michigan, I will be returning home for the first time since leaving to attend the famed Juilliard School in New York, to bring my company home and share my work with the community that first nurtured dance in my life  presenting "Queen of Soul" a new piece dedicated to  Aretha Franklin.
