A Push to Excel as a Community -
Why I Give to Sonia Plumb Dance Company
I first learned about the Sonia Plumb Dance Company as a student at the University of Saint Joseph. They were Artist in Residence, a first for our school, and I was a student director of the dance program. We were fortunate enough to have the Artistic Director, Sonia Plumb, set a dance piece on our ensemble. She pushed us to excel, dig deeper into our capabilities, and to think and to work as an ensemble – as a community. I later learned that she asks that of everyone she works with, students, dancers, board members and volunteers.
Upon graduation, I joined the Board of Sonia Plumb Dance Company. As Board Members, she continues to ask us to excel, to dig deeper into our capabilities, to inquire how we can do better as a Company, as Artists, as Teachers, and as Leaders in the Community.
Sonia Plumb Dance Company enriches and educates the community through innovative, high quality, modern dance. Her vision reaches students from the inner city of Hartford to professors from around the state and further to artists and teachers across the nation.
The creative teaching methods and performances of the Company transform audiences through unique learning experiences and paths of inspiration. Bringing the community together through the pursuit of excellence.
As an educator, I know the importance of participating in the arts. Synapsis are fired, connections are made, work is created. The dancers of Sonia Plumb Dance Company are local teachers and performers who have a passion for interacting with the community and building dance based connections to curriculum that are rare to students.
I look forward to viewing the work the Company creates as I know it is something I can share with my students. Whether it be the connections to their media driven lives through Privacy Settings or the dark and mysterious tales of The Odyssey; the company never fails to impress and I am eager to challenge my students to view art as important and relevant to their course work.
As a donor, Board Member, and supporter of this program, I encourage you to share in the grand experience that is the Sonia Plumb Dance Company and support the chance for someone else to be inspired.
