Review for Dancers' Group, San Francisco, CA, USA
Since moving to San Francisco 15 years ago as an independent dance artist, Dancers' Group has provided me with a tremendous amount of support and guidance in the role of fiscal sponsor. This support has come not simply through its presence (which is considerably reassuring), but in concrete practices in navigating the dance community, including grant writing tips, fund raising advice, and performing opportunities (through presenting programs such as the Bread and Butter Series, 2nd Sundays, and, most recently, New Stages). Dancers' Group monthly periodical In Dance serves as San Francisco's only printed forum for discussion and inquiry. Dancers' Group is the cornerstone of and greatest advocate for Bay Area dance of all genres--no exaggeration.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Writing at least ten grants, publishing through their monthly periodical, being presented by them, receiving insurance riders by them.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Give them a whole bunch more money!
