The inaugural Savannah Dance Festival is scheduled for October and will include a variety classes, outreach, and performances.
I’ve written pretty regularly about the SDF’s efforts, including this post with dozens of photos from their flash mob performance on River Street on July 4th.
From the Kickstarter campaign page:
The Savannah Dance Festival, a 501(c) 3 non profit organization was established about a year ago to address the conspicuous omission of concert, contemporary and modern dance in in a city otherwise noted for outstanding visual and performing art. Music, film and visual art have thrived in Savannah while dance has languished. This project is based on the original premise of the founders of the SDF commission–Bring great contemporary dance to Savannah and the city will get hooked. With that in mind, we set a goal to bring Sean Curran Company, the best we could imagine.
Here’s the campaign video:
I donated to this earlier today, and I hope other arts lovers will come up with a few bucks. If you consider the incredible of other Savannah festivals in recent years, it seems pretty clear that this could turn into something extra special.
