Dance for Food, is a Contemporary dance performance to feed the hungry. Admission cost is a bag of nonperishable food donations. This program raised as many as 20,000 meals in 2015, with outreach in Martin, St. Lucie, and Palm Beach counties. Produced by Artists for a Cause (www.a4ac.org), and artistically produced by Preston Contemporary Dance Theatre (PCDT), the project has multiple goals:
• Fight Hunger.
• Promote the genre of Contemporary Concert dance.
• Build Dance Audiences.
• Serve as a model to pre-professionals to demonstrate artistic integrity with a connection to community issues.
The concerts are designed to be an hour long showcase of regional artists/companies performing thoughtful and artistic dance selections that allow audiences to get to know their work. Regional artists are also expected to serve as mentors to the next generation of dance artists as these concerts include a few high school and/or collegiate pieces that are by invitation only. The time commitment for the performers is limited to the day of the concert. All tech and dress rehearsals are immediately before the showcase and very limited due to the time constraints. Lighting is minimal. Participants are encouraged to submit pieces that will show well with these restrictions.
