*** UPDATED CLASS SCHEDULE BELOW***
As a family of artists from around the world, the Dancers of the Martha Graham Dance Company are deeply saddened by the disruptions caused by the Covid-19 Global Pandemic. Our tours and beloved New York City Season have been canceled/postponed with many challenges and uncertainties ahead, leaving us without the steady income we heavily rely on to survive. In order to continue our dedication to the arts and its vibrant community, we humbly ask for your aid during these turbulent times. Thank you for taking the time to donate to our Dancer Relief Fund. No contribution is too big or too small. We greatly appreciate your generosity and continued support and look forward to dancing for you again soon!
The Dancers of Martha Graham
Who You Are Supporting
With the current pandemic we all face, the dancers of Martha Graham are unable to secure steady work moving forward. Unable to rehearse and perform, we began this fund to support the dancers who would be contracted to work during this time. Here are the faces and names of the dancers you directly support with your generosity:
Pictured above: LLoyd Knight, Ben Schultz, Xin Ying, So Young An, Alyssa Cebulski, Alessio Crognale, Natasha Diamond Walker, Charlotte Landreau, Lloyd Mayor, Laurel Dalley Smith, Jacob Larsen, Marzia Memoli, Anne O’Donnell, Lorenzo Pagano, Anne Souder, Leslie Williams, Aoi Sato, Androniki Vasili, and Cara McManus (not pictured).
How Your Donations Help
We set a goal at $20,000 to be divided evenly among the contracted dancers, hoping to provide at least $1,000 to each dancer to be used towards bills, rent, international visa fees, food, etc. These donations are to be used towards essential needs for each individual during this uncertain time. With your generosity, we will come out of this stronger than ever!
To ensure our donors that the funds will be distributed equally to each and every dancer, we have elected company member, Anne Souder, to withdrawal the funds to her personal account and safely distribute the funds at the end each month.
What We Offer
Starting today, the dancers of the Martha Graham Dance Company have pledged to offer Martha Graham technique class at least once per day on Instagram live Monday through Saturday. Hoping to unite graham dancers worldwide, we want to continue to move, breath, and express through these difficult times. Bring Martha Graham into your daily lives!
We hope the community will recognize the importance of this beautiful form of art and participate in our daily classes on Instagram with our company dancers. We appreciate any and all donations given.
