All  funds  of  this  self-produced  tour  will  be  split  between  these  three  amazing  companies!  Read  below  for  more  compelling  evidence  of  why  you  should  donate  today!

In Fall 2018, 3 choreographers stretched across 3 cities had a Skype meeting to discuss the potential for creating a 3-city tour. We ate 3 carrots each, had 3 glasses of water and decided 3 was our favorite number. (Not really...)


What DID happen, however, is the melding of great minds to create Elevate, a show dedicated to uplifting each other's choreographic voices and helping create inspiration in those around us to raise up our fellow females. Statistics continually prove although dance and choreography is a female saturated art form, the paid positions and recognition consistently are offered to males.


What NEEDS to happen? Raising not only our voices, but our funds.


This tour is self-produced, meaning dancer fees, housing, meals, and the largest of all, PRODUCTION COSTS, lie on our shoulders. "WE CAN DO IT!" comes to mind...  


We believe in our product. We believe in our cause. We believe in the power of dance and art to change lives. Help us bring the best performance experience to New York City, Boston, and Pittsburgh, in an effort to connect us to each other, entertain you, and empower you.
