Todd Rosenlieb Dance

Dear Friends,

As a valued member of Todd Rosenlieb Dance (TRD), Virginia Ballet Theatre (VBT) and the TRDance Center family, we’re reaching out to you during an unprecedented time of need. We’ve overcome many operational challenges in the past (recessions, natural disasters, etc.), but COVID-19 is uncharted territory for us all.

Our partnership with you through the years, has allowed us to provide an educational, directorial and performance space for students, dancers and choreographers who need to create to be their best selves. And by doing so, many of us have benefited from the magic and transformative power of dance. As performers and audience members we have connected. We have moved, engaged, entertained, laughed and sometimes, cried together.

With the temporary closing of our studio spaces and cancellation of the spring performance calendar for VBT and TRD, we are facing unparalleled operational challenges. We are working hard to recreate the way we do business, but the unexpected closing of TRDance Center has had significant financial implications for our professional dancers, staff, directors, teachers and technical crew. Ticket sales, student classes and Academy tuition accounts for half of our operating budget. The other half is from funding and generous contributions.

Will you consider taking a step to help during this challenging time? Your continued generosity will help sustain our two professional dance companies and the dancers, guest artists and choreographers who create art during these uncertain times.

Here are some ways you can help —

Although our performance season is currently paused, we are now creating ways to connect with our students and audiences in new ways that support social distancing, while still feeding our need to create art and connection. This week we’ve gone LIVE! with a collection of virtual teachings for open and structured classes at www.trdance.org. Please join us for a session soon. It will do your mind and body good to just dance.

On behalf of our professional staff, dancers and our Board of Directors we thank you in advance for your continued support.

Be safe,

 
Lisbet Hanson, M.D.
President
TRDance Board of Directors
