Looking Back at 2019 and Ahead to 2020

This past year, the Company reached significant milestones with the help of its generous donors and grassroots support.

  • We continued our community outreach initiative by visiting, performing, teaching, and holding open rehearsals for the students at Marymount Manhattan College, The Martha Graham School Alumni Accelerated Professional Program, as well as the Boys and Girls Club of Queens—reaching over 200 students with our interactive programming.
  • The Company performed at APAP at Peridance Capezio Theater with 20 innovative dance companies from around the world during the 2019 Association of Performing Arts Professionals Conference week.
  • Alison Cook Beatty Dance and Infinity Dance Theatre collaborated for two dynamic evenings on an innovative program, GHOSTS IN THE MACHINE, featuring 24 dancers with and without disabilities. The diverse program presented two works choreographed by Alison Cook-Beatty that she adapted for a collaboration of dancers from both companies, plus two premieres by Infinity’s Artistic Director Kitty Lunn. Portions of the concert were accompanied by live instrumental and vocal music.
  • Alison created three NEW WORKS this year—Seele, Song of Thunder, and Messages in Time.
  • Alison Cook Beatty Dance completed its 7th New York City Fall Season, Artists In Motion, this past November spanning two weeks at the Salvatore Capezio Theater at Peridance Capezio Center with Guest Artists. Artists In Motion consisted of two programs of local dance companies as well as companies and dancers hailing from California, Boston, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Russia.
  • The Company performed across numerous events and festivals including performances with Ariel Rivka Dance, Sans Limites Dance, Backlot Dance Festival, American Dance Guild’s (ADG) Festival, 19th Annual DUMBO Dance Festival, and American Liberty Ballet Production.

We look forward to 2020 and the opportunities ahead for us! Strategic planning has us on pace as we are fast at work in preparing grant proposals, outlining our upcoming performance and outreach offerings, and getting the creative juices flowing for exciting and impactful new work for the next year and beyond.

Would you please consider making a special year-end contribution to secure our future and 2020 programming. While we work very hard on grant and diversified funding, the bulk of our funding comes from individuals donors like you.

Thank you so much!
