Movement Continuum's Fifth Season!

$1,010 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 22 people in 38 months
Movement Continuum, Lexington, Kentucky's premiere contemporary dance company, was founded in 2010 at a Thanksgiving potluck when five friends with full bellies began a conversation about what they dreamed of for their artistic community.  All five wanted to collaborate with other artists, dream big and dance.  It all started simply.  By January 2011, the five were planning a full production set to premiere in November of the same year, setting choreography and getting their feet dirty as they rehearsed night after night.  With a grant awarded by Kentucky Foundation for Women, MC's first production, Flaming Youth, premiered in November 2011 to sold out audiences accompanied by an overwhelming shout of support from the community; that was all it took for the company to be off and running towards another dream, another season.  Now, Movement Continuum is celebrating its fifth anniversary season with "five.", a retrospective production set to premiere November 13 at the Downtown Arts Center in Lexington, KY featuring mini-suites comprised of audience and dancer favorites over the seasons, documentaries interviewing the dancers about their experiences as MC has matured, and a gallery exhibition featuring memorabilia and photographs.  Through its five seasons, MC has produced six shows and seen 22 dancers join its ranks.  It has tackled ciruses, Alice in Wonderland, the roaring 1920's, and the documentation and investigation of a woman's lifeline through movement.  MC wants nothing more than to keep growing bigger, keep creating sustainable and entertaining art for its community, and to continue to provide an outlet for contemporary dancers in the Bluegrass region.  This is where Movement Continuum needs your help.  If we're going to keep growing bigger, we need to keep dreaming big, and theatre rental, costume and prop design, marketing and branding, amongst all the other things that make a company go round, do not come cheap.  MC also has dreams of joining the ranks of non-profit organizations so that it can work towards the creation of sustainable jobs for artists and strong community programming for both dancers and non-dancers, bringing movement to its city and region.  Movement Continuum needs your donations to continue creating and to also make the moves necessary towards creating a more permanent future for itself and its dancers.  When we say $1 helps, we really mean that.  You'd be amazed at what kind of costume can be created from a $1.50 blazer at Goodwill!  

 MC believes in the power of art, the power of the body, and the power of a strong community and those three things are exactly what have gotten us to our fifth season.  Without the never-failing support from our community filling every seat at every performance we give, we wouldn't be here.  Without our community telling us they learned how to love dance by watching us, we wouldn't be here.  You all have genuinely put clothes on our backs, shoes on our feet and a roof over our heads.  So, thank you already for all the support you have given us, and thank you ahead of time for all the love we know you all will send our way.

If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact our director, Kate Hadfield, through GoFundMe.  You can check out our website at www.kentuckymovement.com, and our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/movementcontinuum. Here, we've only left one of our promotional trailers and one photo from previous shows, but if you check out our Facebook you'll be able to find all of the things!  Thank you, again, everyone.  We love you all, each and every one, like whoa.  Hope to see you on November 13 at the Downtown Arts Center in the Black Box Theatre for our premiere of "five."!
