Remember, you can pledge as little as $1 to our Kickstarter campaign! Give a buck. Give $5. You don't have to break the bank to support RDC's artistic and social-benefit endeavors!
We are beyond grateful for the love and support YOU, our friends, family and community members have shown us since launching our Kickstarter just five days ago!
For those of you who donated, liked, or checked out our fundraising page, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
We know that these are hard economic times. Even if you're only able to support us through Facebook "likes," and telling your friends about us, we appreciate you!
But, if you have a little extra cash to give, and are still thinking about donating, you should know that our Kickstarter goal was set at only HALF of what we actually need.
Donating is easy! Simply go to: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/relaydance/relay-dance-collective-premiere-show
Enter in the amount you want to give, select a prize or no prize, enter your information when prompted, and you're done! Your credit card will be charged at the end of April.
We're still working on getting the cost of our first show together, and providing three scholarships to Dance Fremont! students. Bear with me for a little math!

Thanks for supporting RDC and checking out our first creative project as a dance company!
Relay Dance Collective is a project-based group. We are performing artists and working women, pursuing other artistic projects as dancers and choreographers. Our intent was not to create an organization, per say We got together because we thought it would be fun to put on a show, and hey, if we could give back to the community in some way, wouldn't that be cool?
The good thing about being involved with other dance groups and performances is that our perspective stays fresh and never gets stale or too narrow.
This week, two RDC-ers are performing with other groups.
RDC founder and our equivalent of resident choreographer, Amanda Oie, is dancing tonight and tomorrow in Version Excursion's Ballo Alla Vita at Velocity Dance Center. Additionally, she's excited to have just started a new administrative position with internationally-renowned experimental dance leader, Maureen Whiting, and will soon be performing in a piece of Whiting's.
This weekend is also a busy one for Gabrielle Nomura, who is appearing as a show girl in Diamonds, the Heavenly Spies' 10-year anniversary gala at The Triple Door. Part-dance, part craft-project (considering all the rhinestones that needed to be hot-glued on to shoes and leotards), she is having a blast performing with lead choreographer/dancer "Agent Rhinestone," two of her college chums from Western Washington University's dance program, and many beautiful, former Seahawks Sea Gals.
