WHAT IS SWITCH?

Switch is an annual dance performance organized, created and performed by the dancers of the internationally renowned Nederlands Dans Theater. Switch 2014 (March 22nd at Lucent Dans Theater in The Hague) is the 26th anniversary of this special event. All revenue from the evening goes to charity whist showcasing emerging choreographers from NDT. By taking the helm and organizing this benefit dance performance, NDT dancers are presented with opportunities to participate in artistic, social and administrative responsibilities such as design, photography, budgeting, advertising, etc. These opportunities provide an outlet for the dancers to explore and develop valuable new skills while volunteering their time for service work.

The dancers organize everything, including fundraising (this is our first year ever fundraising online!). Dancers from NDT create new works (11 this year) to be performed. Each year, the dancers choose an organization to partner with, and all proceeds from Switch go directly to the partner organization. Additionally, a selection of dancers will be sent to work directly with the organization to volunteer their time and energy to the cause.

All revenue from Switch '14 will benefit the new, joint research initiative of Medical Action Myanmar (MAM) and the Amsterdam Institute for Global Health and Development (AIGHD), with support from ArtAids. MAM focuses on setting up a network of clinics in Myanmar that help with diagnosis, treatment and prevention of HIV/AIDS, Malaria, Tuberculosis, and childhood diseases and malnutrition. We are thrilled to be committing our energies towards such an important cause.

FUNDRAISING GOALS

We need your help. We have to raise another $5,000 to make this event happen. These funds will go towards covering theater rental, technical costs, music rights, costumes, catering, etc. We've had some incredible support thus far and with this online campaign we hope to complete our total fundraising  goal of 20,000. Please consider making a donation for Switch 2014, supporting the creation of 11 new works by NDT dancers while raising money for a great cause. Check out our super fun perks and please help us spread the word by sharing this campaign with friends and family!

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

the dancers of Nederlands Dans Theater
