This year, Parsons Dance has a once in a lifetime opportunity!..

The life-long dance advocate, and our great friend, Alexander J. Dubé, included Parsons Dance in his will with a substantial challenge: raise $1 million dollars by June 27, 2017, and his estate will give us $500,000.  By giving to Parsons Dance, you are joining David Parsons’ artistic team and your support plays a vital role in David’s creative process.  The help of our community allows the company to continue to inspire and excite audiences at home in New York and around the globe. 

Now more than ever, we need your support.  Please join us in building a sustainable foundation to dance on for years to come.
 The matching challenge is significant, but achievable if we all come together to make it happen. Please consider making a generous donation in light of the great impact you can make this year.

We thank you, deeply, for helping us reach our goal and for FUNDING THE FUTURE OF PARSONS DANCE!

Your contribution:

  • Continues David's mission of ensuring that all audiences, regardless of ability, have the opportunity to connect through the universal language of dance
  • Allows David to create new work and to collaborate with the best artistic colleagues in the field
  • Funds dancer salaries for rehearsal and performance
  • Provides studio space for classes, rehearsal and photo shoots
  • Supports the creation of new costumes, lighting and music
  • Engages communities with summer intensive workshops, classes in local K-12 schools, and master classes on tour
  • Enables the growth of our new autism initiative through sensory-friendly workshops and relaxes performances
  • Ensures the successful future of Parsons Dance for generations to come
