Fundraising Goal: $10,000
As you know, Frame Dance is not your average dance studio! We are a non-profit organization founded on the belief that the transformative power of the arts should be shared, as widely as possible, to uplift our community. Over the last 10 years, Frame Dance has done just that, impacting thousands of artists, audiences, students, and families through their radically inclusive, thought-provoking, and intentional approach to dance education, creation, and performance.
Funds raised through this event will contribute to the success and impact of the following programs:
1. Houston Area Women’s Center: We bring the healing power of movement, connection, community, and self-expression to children at the HAWC.
2. Dance Connect with HISD: We bring a thoughtfully developed screendance curriculum to HISD and facilitate instruction in participating schools. The program culminates in Dance Connect, a film festival for HISD students to showcase their work,
3. Training without Trauma: Frame Dance provides the highest quality dance education with a focus on healthy body image and developing the artist’s unique point of view.
4. Creative Wellness Programs: We provide ample opportunity for people of all ages to engage in the creative process and experience the benefits of art-making
5. Dance Scholarships: We offer several scholarships throughout the year to students in need of financial assistance.
Family Mantra Documentary
Frame Dance was invited to incubate a new work at the Contemporary Arts Museum, this film documents the process from beginning to performance. The Family Mantra is an installation-based participatory performance about generational psychological shifts within Houston’s communities. Throughout their CAMHLAB residency, Frame Dance utilized the space at Montrose Collective through weekly events with the goal of building bonds and creative expression for both the dancers and the general public.
