MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR
I am writing to you to bring your attention to the event posting above, a gathering on Monday, September 9, 2013 that is designed to build our collective strengths in the dance community of Columbus and beyond too. Greater Columbus Arts Council is very generously helping to support this. This coming gathering includes the opportunity to show work at any stage of development for discussion and feedback (artist led)… But it can also include general discussions about artists and organizations growth, challenges, needs, hopes and perhaps some good audience development or collaborations can develop.
Some of you on this list might like to come to show, to listen, to bring ideas, or to support your colleagues. Or, you might know of others who would be interested. They might be: Dancers in companies who are interested in developing their choreography? Recent grads interested in doing more work in the community? Newcomers to Columbus who we want to welcome? Help grow the connections and the visibility of dance in Columbus.
Go here for the Invitation and please come!
With kind regards,
Susan Van Pelt Petry
