As we reach our one-year anniversary, we have much to celebrate. Our initial fundraising campaign surpassed $15,000, and with that generosity BDL has begun building a strong presence in the New York dance and Musical Theater communities. Because of your support, BDL has received remarkable exposure during its first year:
In Summer, 2013, BDL received its first commission from the Fire Island Dance Festival, one of the most prestigious dance festivals in the dance community. Josh’s new work, “In Defense” – a piece celebrating the repeal of DADT – opened the festival which presented works from such renowned dance organizations as New York City Ballet, Paul Taylor, and Alvin Ailey.
BDL was invited to present work at Steps Beyond, a performance lab series held at Steps On Broadway, a premiere dance school in New York City.
BDL also performed at Career Transition for Dancers 28th Anniversary GALA: “Broadway and Beyond” honoring Ann-Margaret. This took place on October 8th at The New York City Center – the prestigious 2,750 seat theater and dance establishment in the heart of Manhattan.
Thanks for all you have helped us accomplish! We cannot do it without you.
