#GivingTuesday: Facebook Matching Donations

Dear Friends,

While it has been a banner year for BANDALOOP artistically, it has also been a financially bumpy road taking #danceonwalls across the globe. Performing in Budapest, dancing in a tree in Golden Gate park, mountain work in the Rockies, and bringing dynamic art to the everyday lives of everyday people in Singapore were a few of our highlights. The year is closing with an incredible residency with world class Haitian American composer/violinist, Daniel Bernard Roumain in our studio in a new collaboration.

Help us carry these projects into their next evolution! Support our student scholarship fund to train the next generation of dancers!

We need your help.

Our goal is to raise $5,000 to support this vertical art form that began as a thought experiment while founder Amelia Rudolph was climbing in the Sierra in 1990. Would it be art, if she danced high on a cliff where no one but the lizards, swallows and peregrines could see it? Little did she know this experiment would grow into a robust community of dancers, riggers, students and audiences that span the globe from Oakland to Hyderabad, and whose hub is a cozy studio in West Oakland buzzing with students of all ages.

Help to advance our work and our school at this crux.

Our students want more BANDALOOPing; our audiences are ready for more performance. Please help us make that happen. The Facebook campaign is here — donations are being matched today by Facebook while funds last — or you can donate directly through our site.

Thank you for continuing to make our vision of cultural diplomacy and celebration of the human spirit possible.
