BACK OUR JULY 27-29 SEASON ON INDIEGOGO
Kaley Pruitt Dance has launched a 30 day fundraising campaign on IndieGoGo running from June 1st to July 1st. We hope you can be a part of helping us reach our funding goal! After a sold out 2016 Season, we are excited to be adding a 3rd night of performances this July and we need your help to get there.
We are excited to bring three New York City premieres to Triskelion Arts this July 27, 28, and 29 at 8pm nightly. The season will include a world premiere and two works that have been in the creative process this year, “Critical Mass” and “Room for Elephants”. Both pieces have premiered at Illinois State University as works in progress and are being set on Kaley Pruitt Dance this summer. I am honored to be working with company dancers Cassandra Bowser, Ashley Ervin, Megan Wubbenhorst, as well as guest artist Robert Perales.
We are looking to raise $4,750 through this campaign to fund the dancers’ rehearsal and performance pay, space rental, and costumes. I am as committed to our artistic vision as I am about paying our dancers fairly for their professional work. Check out our full IndieGoGo Campaign here.
Know that no donation amount is too small! Contributions of any amount are incredibly helpful to furthering our work. Your dollars will go directly towards the dancers pay first and foremost, and then to the other budget items as we approach our funding goal. We have great perks for NYC locals as well as out of town supporters for donating as little as $10. Thank you for your support of KPD and the arts!
KALEY PRUITT DANCE investigates the nuances of the human experience and explores the intrinsic communication between bodies in space. The work spans from comedic dance theater to abstract concert aesthetic. Kaley aims to create a dance environment to experience escapes from and reconsideration of day to day life. She is interested in bringing dance back into the public sphere through both traditional and non-traditional performance settings and performance content. Pruitt’s work looks to open the door for the viewer to reflect upon their own personal experiences in a deeper way through the work. It is not a prescribed experience; it is an opportunity to understand more deeply what one has known but overlooked in the world around them. Dance has the power to speak across categories that seem to continually divide and further divide our cultures. With movement, we can all start from the same place and go on a journey together, understanding that we are all human and have so much in common. Kaley Pruitt has been working in New York City as a dancer and choreographer since 2011. Pruitt’s choreography has been presented through Illinois State University, Manhattan Movement & Arts Center, Triskelion Arts, Chez Bushwick and The Center for Performance Research, Built on Stilts in Martha’s Vineyard, The Secret Theater, Ketchum Arts Commission, Dixon Place, Movement Research, Niagara, & Nancy Smith Fichter Dance Theatre.
