Help us raise $7,000 in 30 days!

We need to raise money to bring the evening length work Rock Om, which we've poured our hearts (and personal funds) into for the last 12 months, to Boston in January. Please help us!

This campaign runs from Nov 19th - Dec 19th 2011 only. 

How you can help:
1. Right now, bookmark this page:
2. Set a reminder on your phone for this Saturday Nov 19th, to log on and donate.
3. Share! Tell your colleagues! Tell your high school drama teacher! Tell your investment banker!

Remember: we're nearing the end of the year - do you need to get any Tax Deductible Donations out of the way? We can help with that!
In return for your support, we have some great rewards lined up (see the indiegogo page) and our eternal gratitude and love is just ONE of them!

The next few months herald a huge step in our performances as a company and our audience reach. We've been invited to perform at larger venues than ever before, and we're more than ready to step up to the plate. In one significant area - funding - we need your help.

Gone are the days of studio showings, where we could get away with dancers performing in rehearsal clothes, where 'studio lights' could be rationalized with "it's a work in progress."  With Oberon in Boston holding an audience of 300, this 50-minute, high energy, high quality piece now requires of us higher production values - our own music, actual lighting design, and costumes that aren't held together with twine!

The last 12 months have been a labor of love. We have torn the skin on our feet, spent precious rehearsal hours mopping flooded studio floors, and sobbed into our partners' arms.  We have marveled at all the little choreographic miracles that sometimes happen when we thought we'd hit a wall. Now, we've reached a point where cannot continue making this piece with a ''New York budget - i.e. zero'' (as our composer so eloquently put it).

Thank you, in advance, for your help!

- Rachel, Krista, Hunt, Clare, Matt and Erica. 

If you'd like a reward that's way more immediate, we're having our launch party for this campaign THIS SATURDAY Nov 19th
