    Dance as Ever is a not for profit organization, and a place where you can make a difference!

    Donate Money

    Ticket sales can only cover a small fraction of the actual cost of production of new repertory. The other portion must come from donations. Please contact us if you are interested in contributing to Dance as Ever.

    If you'd like to donate to us online via credit card you can do so using the button below:

    Your payment will be processed through PayPal.

    Be An Angel!!

    The generosity of our supporters makes Dance as Ever a reality. Now, we'd like to say thanks in a special way. Become a behind-the-scenes angel at one of the following levels of support and receive a down-to-earth reward from Dance as Ever:

    • Friend ($50)


    • For a contribution of $50, you'll receive recognition in our program and you'll also be entitled to our "bring a friend" discount -- buy two tickets to a performance and get the third one free.

    • Supporter ($100)


    • At this support level, you receive the same benefits as the Friend level, plus you'll have the opportunity to attend an open rehearsal and you'll get one of our Dance as Ever tee-shirts.

    • Patron ($175)


    • You'll have the same benefits as a Supporter and you'll receive a copy of our concert video. You'll also be able to attend a studio "sneak preview" of the concert program in early October.

    • Benefactor ($250)


    • Get all the same benefits as the preceding levels plus attend a post-performance reception with the cast.

    • Underwriter ($500 and higher)


    • Youll receive all the benefits of the preceding levels plus the option of adopting an aspect of the production -- a chance to be a Medici on a budget!

    Donate Time and Services

    As important as money, donated time and services are essential for our survival. We are especially looking for people interested in Board development, audience development and fundraising. If you are inspired by what we do, your participation can be integral to it! Here's how you can help!

    In-Kind Donations:

    Raffle Prizes:  Do you have a product or service you want to promote?  Consider making a donation to our annual raffle and auction.  It does good, and it's good business too  -- and we'll provide a link to your website on ours! We especially need general interest items (gift certificates to stores and restaurants) with a retail value of $50 and up. To see the raffle prizes that have been already donated for this year's drawing, click here.

    Auction and Bazaar Items:  Each year, some of the most talented craftspeople throughout the world donate one-of-a-kind items made of the finest materials. Our contributors provide memorable and exquisite articles that can cover you from head to toe -- hats and scarves, shawls and wraps, socks and slippers, and even a thong or two -- as well as bags to carry them in.

    If you'd like to put your talents to work for Dance as Ever by creating an item for our auction, please contact us for further details. And be sure to visit our auction page to see the items that have already been contributed for our 2003 auction.

    Throughout the year, we also have available a selection of reasonably-priced handmade items for sale. So if you're looking for a unique gift, visit our bazaar page. (Note: Bazaar items are also available for purchase at our concerts.)

    Also visit our bazaar page to purchase one of our new Dance as Ever T-Shirts. Show your support for your favorite dance company where everyone can see it! Our T-shirts are heavy 100% white cotton with the Dance as Ever logo boldly printed across the chest in black. They come in sizes S, M, L, XL and XXL. Shirts are $15 for sizes S-XL and $20 for XXL. Shipping is $5 per shirt. Please go to our bazaar page for ordering details.

    Volunteer Help:

    Here's the volunteer help we need!

    Handbill and Postcard Distribution: Can you help us get our handbills and postcards in stores and dance studios? We need this help at the end of August, but it can be done on your own time.

    Hospitality - lodging. We know how precious space and privacy is in NYC, but if you've got spare room, we truly need places for the lighting designer and the videographer to stay for short periods. Hospitality for a portion of their stay rather than the full time is quite welcome.

    Hospitality - dinner hosts. Sample the cuisine of Morningside Heights and make new friends for Dance as Ever! We're developing a group of "hosts" that will organize a dinner meeting before the performance so people have a social reason to go. There are lots of good restaurants in the area for all tastes and budgets, and by encouraging people to make an outing of dinner/brunch and performance, you can help to increase our audience.

    Transportation, load-in and strike help: We need kind souls with cars to help us take things to and from the theater and we need extra hands (three to four, if possible) on the days we move into and out of the theater.

    Backstage help: We need two people to be backstage helping during the shows. (Note: one of the folks will need to be there Wednesday though Sunday.) This is generally not strenuous work, we don't foresee many quick scenery or costume changes. . .yet! It's all right to volunteer for part of the run rather than the whole.

    Front of house help: Help man the raffle and auction table before the show and during the intermission! Help us raise money AND get to fondle the merchandise! We need two to three people per performance, if possible.

    Email or call us and tell us when you're available. It makes a difference!
