This past weekend we were rehearsing for our performances to benefit Little Brook Farm, an equine rescue sanctuary and B.I.T.S., their wonderful educational outreach program.
For me, this project is a labor of love. It took a beautiful turn on Saturday, when we started to work with three young girls who ride at Little Brook. Photos of that work are up on Facebook. I have been working with the riders, as well as with Amado, the rescued Mustang and his owner, Summer Brennan, for the past several months. Now we are putting the pieces together, and I am excited about the results.
We are still seeking support for the last series of rehearsals for the project. The eight dancers all travel from a distance to participate, and the professional dancers in that group are paid for the efforts. This has always been important to me. Artists often give their work away, and there is a prevalent feeling that somehow that should be ok. It isn’t. If you can help us to cover some of those expenses as we come close to completing the project, please use the Google donate button here. Just type in the amount you would like to donate. Paula Josa-Jones/Performance Works is a tax exempt arts organization. Donations over $100 will receive a pair of tickets for the benefit, and we will split your donation with Little Brook Farm.
