It is through all the physical, financial and energetic donations of our past supporters that Pushing Progress Contemporary Dance has been able to continue moving forward with our projects, fostering the artistic growth and minds of this generation's artists.

With your help, we can continue to present such events as the upcoming 2017 Showcase Series, an exciting tradition that positively impacts our community by cultivating the growth of emerging artists and the importance of accessible arts education.

Held February 18th and 19th at Peridance Capezio Center (126 East 13th St.), the Showcase Series offers opportunity for emerging artists to share their own works onstage alongside more established choreographers.  As you can imagine, in order for these opportunities to be made as accessible as possible, it takes a community of generous sponsors and individuals to come together and help us fund our cause.  Your gift helps cover the many costs of facility rental for the performance and reception, studio rehearsal space, and promotional material to reach a wider public audience.  Since Pushing Progress is a sponsored artist supported by 501(c)(3) The Field, all donations are also tax-deductible.

Your gift can help us cover the costs of:

Printing of promotional Materials ($250)

Printing of Programs ($800)

Space and set up for Showcase Reception ($300)

Videographer ($500)

Photographer ($400)

Theater Rental for Tech ($190/hr X 13 hrs)

Theater Performance Rental ($1500 - $2000)

Technical crew ($1000 - $1500)



We have set a sponsorship goal of $3000.00 by February 19th to help subsidize the increasing costs of running this year's event.  If you would like to be a 2017 supporter you can do so by:
