Goal: $20000

Since 2008, our Tad-Poles stilt-dancing classes have impacted hundreds of children in our community. While stretching, balancing & dancing, they’ve learned discipline & artistry & learned the joy that comes from working hard to achieve goals.

They are becoming artists – every great artist takes inspiration from someone greater than themselves, & for these kids, that’s the Brooklyn Jumbies. Based in Caribbean & African traditions, the Jumbies have become giants in their field. They are true professionals & have travelled the world, performing in festivals and museums. Everywhere they go, their acrobatic dancing and their glorious wearable sculptures create a massive spectacle. The Tad-Poles are incredibly inspired by them. They see their success & realize how far dedication to a craft can take them. They want to learn from them. 

The Jumbies founded the Tad-Poles back in 2008, & were scheduled to return this June for intensive workshops with our Tad-Poles. Unfortunately, funding for these classes has fallen through suddenly & we need your help to make this invaluable opportunity happen. 

In honor of our 20th season, we are launching our 20 for 20 donation campaign, seeking to raise $20,000 to make these highly anticipated classes a reality.

Every child (even one on stilts) needs someone to look up to. Help them keep dreaming big.  Donate today.
