One Step at a Time!
July 6, 2020
As Tapestry Dance continues to prioritize the health and well-being of our patrons, artists, staff, and the community at large due to the continuing spread of COVID-19, we will continue to have a hold on all on-site academy classes and events. We SO miss our students, but safety for all comes first.
In addition, the professional company's 31st Season / 20-21 will be announced as venue possibilities are evaluated and put into place. The company has been blessed with a recent NEA CARES grant, a Texas Commission on the Arts NEA funded CARES grant and incredible contributing angels during this difficult time. That support is helping to keep our 2015 Riverside Facility and the ongoing plans to move forward in support of keeping Tapestry open and its dancers employed. The rent is still due even though our facility stays empty for the safety of our artists and students.
We are deeply saddened by not being able to see and work with our beloved students as well as our patrons, artists, musicians and others due to the cancelled shows, rehearsals and events that came to a halt, or were cancelled on March 15th or soon after. Little did we know, that Saturday the 14th, with dozens of you in class, would be our last for awhile. For the professional company, having to cancel the premiere of Looking Forward/Looking Back in celebration of our 30th Anniversary Season was one of the most difficult. Incredible works by some of our alumni ….one day to be seen I hope.
We will keep you posted via our website at www.tapestry.org, email, FB (Tapestry Dance) and Instagram. We apologize that you have not heard from us sooner; plans and solutions seem to change daily. Please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org as well.
Thank you for your patience as we manage through this rapidly changing landscape. We are grateful for your dedication to Tapestry – our incredible artists, our history and our mission to share the power of dance through performance and education / Weaving Dance Into Life.
We look forward to the time when we can share these services and programs with you again!
Please stay safe and take care of each other. We’re all in this together.
One step at a time.
