Igniting the Stage for 2023
Support SteLi for our Fall 2023 Performance Season! With your help, this Fall we will grace the stage with our newly developing work, "TWO."
Join us in bringing the magic of dance back to the stage! SteLi Dance is immensely grateful for the incredible support we've received from our community throughout the past year. Together, we've developed workshops and programs that have inspired and uplifted us all. Now, it's time for us to return to what we love most—performing.
Introducing "TWO," our newest collaborative work that pushes the boundaries of artistic expression. Building upon the transformative experiences of our Into-You-I-See Workshop, we're excited to experiment, research, and delve deeper into this unique technique. "TWO" represents the power of connection and support. It is a series of duets, each representing needing one another for mental health, physical health, and environmental health. These issues often seem bigger than us and sometimes feel completely out of our hands to tackle alone- but we don’t have to. The first piece of this series was performed in May, 2022 at IATI Theater, and we can't wait to develop and build on this.
But we can't do it alone. We need your support to make this vision a reality.
By contributing to our Igniting the Stage for 2023 Crowdfunding Campaign, you're not just supporting a dance company; you're becoming an integral part of the artistry that will grace the stage. Every donation, no matter the size, brings us closer to reaching our goal and sharing our passion with the world. One of the incredible benefits of supporting SteLi Dance is the opportunity to receive a 100% tax deduction for your donation. As a token of our appreciation, we have prepared a range of rewards and perks exclusively for our campaign supporters. From a shoutout on social media and the performance program to complementary and early access tickets to our show!
Together, let's ignite the stage in 2023 and create an unforgettable experience that resonates with hearts and minds. Donate today and be a part of the magic!
