DANCE CARE PACKAGE INFORMATION
Custom-made dance created for your loved ones.
A Letter from Artistic Director, Laura Karlin
Dearest Dance Care Package Community:
Thank you so much for your support this past year. Digital Dance Care Package grew from a desire to create art, support our dance artists, and build community despite our distancing during a life changing event. We have felt supported, and after our Care Package Cinema events – learned so much about you all as community. As restrictions begin to lift for our communities our dance artists, teachers, and staff members will begin to focus on safety and reconnecting with folks. This care and attention to another shift in consciousness will take much of our staff programming time. This is why Invertigo is choosing to put this program ON PAUSE after May 5th, 2021. We love the Digital Dance Care Package community, and we hope to reconnect with you all again.
Digital Dance Care Package orders are on Pause
Invertigo Dance Theatre thanks everyone who has requested a Digital Dance Care Package from 2020-2021 in support of our artist community. We hope these short films brought light and joy into your world. As we move towards programming for the rest of the year, this program will be put on pause. Thank you for understanding. If you have additional questions feel free to email Community Engagement Manager, Rosa Navarrete at [email protected]. Thank you and we wish you all the best!
“I sent my Mom one of these, and she cried. If you need a unique gift for another occasion, Invertigo’s care packages come highly recommended from me.”
“This is a beautiful way to remind people you care about them. I’m moved by this concept of gifting a dance to support the arts and artists.”
— Valerie I.
“Wow, now that is an incredible expression of friendship! We’ve never had a personally commissioned dance made for us. ‘Thank you’ hardly seems like enough.”
— Mark B.
What’s in the care package?
- An original dance solo created for you by an Invertigo dancer, based on prompts you supply. This is a one-of-a-kind gift, made for you and yours, by us.
- A customized gallery of vibrant dance photography
- A gallery of exclusive video excerpts of Invertigo performances and dance films – they’re joyful, funny, tender, hopeful…
- A beautiful card with your personalized message on it
A package will be sent to your chosen person, and we’ll send a copy to you as well.
What is the turnaround time for care packages?
We will do our best to get care packages put together and sent out as quickly as possible. Packages will arrive in approx. seven business days from your order, which gives our artists time to create your customised solo and our staff time to edit video and put together your package.
How long is the customized solo?
Solos will vary in length but will average 3 minutes.
Can I request a specific dancer/song/location for my customized solo?
We will curate the artistic experience for you based on your written prompts, so Artistic Director Laura Karlin will select the dancer and work with them on the choreography and music selection. Some dancers have access to outdoor locations, and some are only filming safely from within their homes. It’s a gorgeous grab-bag of artistry!
