Dear Carolyn Dorfman Dance Community,

We send this with hopes that you and yours are well and taking the necessary precautions and medical care to manage the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

To ensure the safety of our dancers and staff, Carolyn Dorfman Dance has suspended all in-person artistic, educational and community programming until it is considered safe and recommended by local, state and national governments and the CDC. During this time our number one goal is to financially support our dancers, staff and collaborating artists as we navigate this crisis. We also will work creatively with our presenting, education and community partners as we look to the future and, where possible, provide virtual programming to fulfill our joint commitments, goals and missions.

Our May 2, 2020 performance and gala benefit at NJPAC, entitled TOGETHER, will be postponed, yet its message will continue to be our mantra. At a time when social distancing is required for our health and well-being, our artistic and life philosophy, “that at our best, we are unique individuals who exist in relation to each other” and “that we are inextricably linked” is more important than ever. We are, in fact, in this TOGETHER, and it will take our individual and collective commitment to ourselves and one another to overcome COVID-19 and its effects on all of us.

These steps have not been easy because our annual Performance and Gala Benefit at NJPAC is our biggest and most important fundraiser. The success of our Performance and Gala Benefit is essential not only for the salaries of our dancers, but also for the implementation of our performance, educational and community programming. We hope that in the coming weeks you will answer our call for support and that you continue your generosity during this very, very challenging time.

TOGETHER, with your help, Carolyn Dorfman Dance will be able to fulfill our vision for creating a better world by transforming lives through Dance.

We will stay connected…so stay tuned.

All our best,
