Mission: Cheshire Moon is dedicated to using the arts as a force for change in Southern California.
Results: Since our first event in 2004, Cheshire Moon has touched the lives of hundreds of dancers, choreographers, and performers through our Dancescape events. The productions have grown to encompass more than 25 individual numbers, with as many as 200 dancers taking the stage during any single show. Through our partnership with DonorsChoose.org, which began in 2007, Cheshire Moon contributions have fully or partially funded classroom proposals impacting just over 6,000 students in the Southern California community. We look forward to many more years of cultivating unique and inspiring live events celebrating creativity, giving back to the community, and producing change in the world.
Target demographics: increase access to arts education and performances.
Direct beneficiaries per year: over 2,000 students in the Southern California community.
Geographic areas served: Southern California
Programs: performance opportunities, arts education programs, and providing funding for classroom projects and arts organizations.
Cheshire Moon Inc. has provided a great platform for dancers, parents, choreographers, and spectators through Dancescape. The event allows all the above mentioned to enjoy a night of dance while raising money towards a great cause. Their mission statement includes the phrase "using the arts as a force for change in Southern California," which is exactly what they are doing and doing a great job at it. I am so lucky to have experienced the vision, motivation, and dedication that this organization represents.
