The community is invited to The Defiance Project's Debut Fundraiser Performance and Silent Auction in Solana Beach later today! This event will feature performances, superb silent auction items, delicious desserts, and more!
"It is with great pride that we debut our dance company, The Defiance Project, to our community of supporters and fans at our first official fundraising performance," says Amy Krause, mother to Sophie Needelmen, cofounder of the dance group. The Defiance Project uses the creation, expression, practice, and performance of dance to explore what it means to defy, hence its name. The company behind this project manifests defiance in both the form and function, and process and product of the work it does. Pieces include works choreographed by cofounders, Becky Kalinowski and Sophie Needelman.
"We have taken advantage of various performance opportunities and fundraising events throughout the dance community, including performances at the 2012 Little Italy ArtWalk, Mojalet's Core Group Weekend at The Vine, and PGK's Dance Moves. As our dance company continues to grow and expand, we hope to extend our fundraising efforts to our network of support above and beyond the dance community," says Needelman.
Funds raised will be put toward offsetting the cost of future performances, rental of rehearsal space, publicity and marketing materials with every donation making a difference. "We are honored and grateful for the time you have spent taking to heart our cause of bringing dance to the level of defiance. Thank you for your continued support. Looking forward to the defying to come!"
The dance company will be performing at its first official fundraiser on July 13 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Studio Shu, located at 742 Genevieve St., Suite A, Solana Beach, 92075.
