Kanopy Dance is creating thought-provoking dance

per month
Kanopy Dance Company stages works by its artistic directors and local, regional, national and international choreographers; as well as historical dance masterworks, all linked by the desire to create thought-provoking dance that is daring, elegant, humorous and bold.

Kanopy Dance Company’s annual season includes performances in its home theater at the Overture Center, touring, outreach, and collaborative projects. In addition to presenting these concerts at the Overture Center for the Arts, Kanopy Dance offers complementary programming to expand the experience for the community and reach additional audiences.

Your patron dollars allow Kanopy to offer additional community events like host master classes and workshops with guest artists, backstage tours, open rehearsals, opening night pre-show talks, opening night receptions, free tickets and classes for those in our community who could not attend otherwise, outreach performances in our community at schools, outdoor festivals, community centers and more. Most importantly, they allow us to pay our dance artists a fair wage for the incredible work they do.

Our work is ambitious in its creative breadth, but equally ambitious in its financial scope. We are committed to presenting historical dance masterworks, commissioning premieres, and maintaining high production values for all of our concerts. To accomplish these artistic goals, Kanopy Dance relies on your patronage as well as ticket sales, student tuition, grants, local sponsorships, and individual contributions.

Goals
$22 of $760 per month
When we reach $760 per month we'll start giving our dancers a rehearsal stipend.

Long term, $760 per month is what we'd like to pay each of our dancers for rehearsal time, so reaching this goal is the first step towards freeing our dancers from the need to work jobs outside of their work with Kanopy.
