Support Periapsis Music and Dance:

We can’t do it without you! Donations help us create and rehearse our artistic works, build our repertoire, produce our events, continue to provide service programs to the community, and more. Our budget leans heavily towards artist pay, with little administrative overhead.

At a time when arts support is at risk of government and institutional cutbacks, when cost of living is rising and wages are not, artists are particularly vulnerable. Creating new dance (and music) works is a time- and energy-intensive endeavor for all involved, and though it is a labor of love, our artists are professionals and their time and artistic energy is their livelihood. The dance world is notorious for its lack of cash flow, yet we are determined to be part of the solution. By supporting us, you are supporting better artist pay in the dance community as a whole!

Artists’ Circle and Producers’ Circle

This is a unique philanthropic opportunity to directly underwrite the creation of our new repertoire works.  When you see the work in concert or on video, you will know that it was your contribution that helped it come into being.  Artists’ Circle donations cover a substantial portion of the costs of creating or reviving a specific piece.  This could involve: commissioning the choreographer and/or composer, rehearsal time for the dancers and musicians, performance fees, and associated costs (such as costumes, sets, and studio rental).

In return for directly helping us create new repertoire, Artists’ Circle donors will receive a “made possible by” (or similar) credit or dedication in performance programs of the work and may also receive: recognition in the repertoire section of our website; recognition in the musical score; a signed, printed copy of the musical score; video of the piece; an invitation to a rehearsal; a signed photo from the work; and complimentary tickets to the premiere.

Producers’ Circle offers similar recognition, but you would be supporting a full event or season production. These contributions are available at different amounts, scaled to the work they are supporting and the scope of the support.  Please contact us to learn more!
