Let's make sure arts and culture thrive on the other side of this time.

“Selwyn has managed to produce sincere, personal works year after year for two decades—no small feat.” The New Yorker

This past summer, Notes in Motion, Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre’s arts education program, received an unprecedented 10% of all NYC Artist Corps awards granted to performing arts organizations. This vote of supreme confidence in our work enabled us to bring dance to 2,500 young people — many who had spent more than a year glued to screens — catapulting us to a new level of visibility and building on our 22 years of creating, sharing, and presenting compelling dance theatre.

These grants, and other donations, helped us during this time of uncertainty to continue to lead with the values of fostering inclusion and self-expression through dance while strengthening our relationships with artists, partners, supporters, and friends. Our virtual event Why We Dance engaged audiences around the globe. Throughout the year, we offered virtual, in-person, and hybrid dance programming to more than 25 schools. Three highly successful outdoor events further widened our reach and impact: Dance for Your Dinner, Open Culture Preview of Threads, and Green Afternoon. During the 2021-2022 Season, we are continuing the development of Threads, which will premiere in full at New York Live Arts April 7-9, 2022.

Investing in arts and culture is essential to our nation's economic, emotional, and physical recovery. From our inception, we have been driven by the vision that you cannot create dance in the now unless you are thinking about audiences of the future. We need your help to create this vital choreographic work in the now and to serve and support future audiences, many of whom have experienced great learning loss throughout the pandemic. Help us to help them. Please consider a monthly pledge of support — you can create an ongoing impact on the landscape of dance and arts education.

Thank you for your support and wishing you health and love this holiday season.

Amanda Selwyn
