ALBORADA SPANISH DANCE THEATRE
October 18, 2013

I volunteer my time to Alborada to help with marketing and small grant writing tasks. This dance company truly makes miracles on a shoestring budget. They bring a Broadway show like experience on stage – live music, dance, singing, drama, poetry, history and more – at ticket prices usually $20 or below. Their passion for the Spanish cultural arts is unmatched, and they also bring in other world cultures – Latino, Caribbean, Indian, Irish, Middle Eastern and more – to show how these cultures influenced Spain, and through these arts, to also show how we can appreciate cultural differences and similarities.

ART PRIDE NEW JERSEY FOUNDATION INC
February 26, 2010

Art Pride NJ is an arts advocacy group that truly fulfills their mission to help expand awareness of and growth for the arts in NJ. As a member of a NJ non-profit dance company, and an audience member at arts events in NJ, I know Art Pride is always trying to raise the level of awareness of the importance of arts in NJ, not only for economic reasons, but also for our quality of life. They regularly galvanize the public to send messages to government officials (via e-blasts, mailings, etc) in support of the arts and make it easier to do so with the tools they provide on their website.

The Great!

Their advocacy efforts have enabled some government funding to remain for the arts despite efforts at the state level to completely cancel all funding.
