It is with deep gratitude for your past support that we ask you to renew your pledge with a generous 2010 contribution. Our full-time positions as associate professors at the University of Maryland College Park (UMCP) have sparked a creative appetite that is surprising even us with its voracity. We are honored to have received funding from the NEA, NYSCA, the O’Donnell-Green Foundation, the American Music Center, and UMCP. The multitude of projects in the works will only become a full reality WITH YOUR SUPPORT.

Yes, it’s true: we have taken the plunge and accepted full time faculty positions at the University of Maryland/College Park. An offer was made which we couldn’t refuse–a low teaching load, support for our own creative work, and enthusiasm for our ideas of giving students professional level experiences outside of the university walls. So now you can address us as professors! We are still working with our company, still choreographing, still touring, but now we have access to beautiful studios, students who are eager and intelligent with whom we can work over a three-four year period, and health insurance! This didn’t stop us from crossing two oceans to create two new works this year!

Great things are happening, but with the current economic changes affecting the entire planet, the realization of each of these projects hangs in the balance and depends on YOU.
