Greetings Friends!

We hope this email finds you well and enjoying the heat of Summertime! Your past support has been instrumental in assisting us to develop and share meaningful work throughout our community. Following the success of The Loving Project: E-Race (if you missed us, you can view our Kennedy Center Millennium Stage performance here), we are venturing through the summer with a new campaign: EDINBURGH OR BUST!

Every Penny Helps!

We need your support now! While we did not receive (hopefully anticipated and regretfully declined) funding from the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation's US Artists International program, we are now challenged to raise $10,000 by August 1.

Thanks to the generous support of individuals like you, we have been able to secure travel and accommodations for the company. However, Dance Box Theater is committed to paying artist fees (for Chloe and Leah Smith, Kofi Dennis and our lighting designer, Cathy Eliot) and covering the rest of our project expenses for the tour.

About the Edinburgh or Bust Campaign

As you may know, last summer we performed an excerpt from Haunted at the 2009 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. We have been invited back to Edinburgh by a UK presenter, Dance Base to perform the full-evening version of Haunted with our full company of musician collaborators Leah and Chloe Smith and Kofi Denis. Dance Base is known as Scotland’s National Center for Dance and we are delighted to be invited for 12 performances over two weeks this coming August during the 2010 Edinburgh Fringe Festival!

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is recognized as the largest performing arts festival in the world. Our presenter, Dance Base is located in the heart of the festival in the Grassmarket. Presenters from across the globe come to see work during the festival and we are hoping to continue building our relationship with Dance Base and spark the interest of other international presenters as we perform the full-evening version of Haunted to an international audience.

This is an amazing honor for us and an opportunity for you to help catapult our work into an international arena. Although we will receive a fee from Dance Base, this fee will not cover all of our expenses. Our goal is to raise $10,000 by August 1, 2010. We invite you to contribute what you wish to our Edinburgh or Bust campaign!

Dance Box Theater is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and all contributions are tax deductable to the fullest extent of the law. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated! Every penny helps!

Interested in other ways to help? Let us know if you have any corporate connections, matching gift programs at your work place or unique fundraising ideas! We are grateful for your interest and support and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Cheers!
