I am trying to raise $1000 to travel to Mexico for a community outreach dance program this summer...

This May/ June 2011, I will be among 10 dancers from SUNY Purchase College, Fordham University, and LINES/Dominican to travel to Mexico with JUNTOS!

JUNTOS (‘together’ in Spanish) is a collective of performing artists in New York City and San Francisco committed to social justice and community outreach through dance. Founded in 2008 by Joanna Poz-Molesky and college students such as myself, the collective grants me an opportunity to teach and perform in orphanages, elementary schools, with children from low-income families, and for larger public audiences.

Together, JUNTOS strives to create a public space for artists to develop and promote our capacities in leadership, artistic dimensions, and professional experience. We aim to bring young peoples of diverse backgrounds together and to bridge a young generation of leaders in the United States and Mexico. JUNTOS objectives include: artistic and choreographic growth through social justice; community outreach and leadership; international exposure; and intercultural exchange.

The cost of the trip is $1000 - a bargain for this fantastic experience, but still a substantial amount of money for me to come up with as a college student. With your help, I will be able to cover this cost and experience dance as a communal artform and a powerful agent of social justice! NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL! Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I appreciate any help you can give!
