We would like to thank Beth and David Hoge, The East Bay Fund for Artists, Susanne Takehara and the EastSide Cutlural Center, the California Arts Council, our generous Fairy God Mother and generous individual donors.

We look forward to 2018 and going into our 5th year of the GIRL Project, creating new work with sights towards participating in the World Parkinson’s Congress in 2019 and plan to create and publish a compilation of interviews by dancers with Parkinson’s disease.

We turn to you to ask for your support in spreading dance in our community.
