Sandy Stewart's Campaign: Scholarships for well-deserving kids
by Sandy Stewart
Tapestry Dance Company is beefing up their scholarship program this year. Your donation can help cover tuition, tap shoes and show tickets for kids that qualify for scholarships. These kids are typically from low-income homes and not only does tap dancing teach them skills like....ability to learn, memorize, problem-solve and work well in a team, it also teaches them perseverance, focus, grit and self-discipline. AND you're supporting the arts in Austin! Heck yeah!! If I raise the full $1,000 and I match $1,000, that total $2,000 will provide scholarships for new kids this year! Every dollar counts! Thank you for supporting me and for supporting an organization I love through and through!

Campaign to support Tapestry Dance Company
by Kaz Kazanoff
Ever since I first saw the amazing "Sand Dance" video of Bojangles, I have been a diehard tap dance fan. And why not, since it combines the best of jazz and blues with the wonderful rhythm of movement. Then when I got to see the old hoofers LIVE in NYC in the 1970's I was floored (pardon the pun)! What luck that when I moved to Austin, a unique and special dance company was just getting started, Tapestry! Every year I satisfy my tap 'jones' by attending Tapestry's "Soul to Sole" performances, 5 days in Austin where the company presents world renowned tap dancers in both performance and education. But Tapestry goes beyond keeping the tap flame burning, as over the years they have combined dance with excellent shows (now at the Rollins Theatre in the Long Center), presenting both lighter Holiday pieces (the Jazz Nutcracker "Of Mice and Men") and more serious and timely works ("Passing it Forward"). We are very lucky to have Tapestry Dance with us in Austin, the ONLY tap repertory company in the world! Now more than ever they need YOUR help to continue presenting their inspiring and creative work and their educational programs for youth!

Help Us Support Tapestry Dance Company
by Eric Burleson
We have fallen in love with this dance company and studio! Maggie has been thriving in her ballet and tap class every Saturday and Eric and Jessica switch weeks in the beginner class with Acia - the amazing Artistic Director.

The dance company is amazing and is the only repertoire tap dance company in the United States. Every show is a joy to watch. Tapestry employs the most professional dancers in Austin outside of Ballet Austin. To keep this beautiful art form alive, we must support the dancers who make it thrive. Help Tapestry today by donating to support one of our incredibly talented dancers!

We Need A Floor!
by Acia Gray
Thanks so much for visiting my Tapestry Dance Company page during this year's Amplify Austin fundraising campaign! During this ONE DAY event, we have the chance to get matching funds for our overall operational goal of $10,000. If you put those tap shoes on every week or enjoy this incredible and indigenous American art form, let's combine our gifts to get a new and portable hardwood floor! We are always asked to do outreach programming around our beautiful city and the lack of a portable floor keeps us from "spreadin' more rhythm around!" Let's make this happen and change some lives through tap dance!

Saving Soles
by Carol Ann Jellison
Tapestry Dance Company saved my life. After I had my hip and part of my leg removed I was in a wheelchair and determined to walk again. Even as I just "weebled" about, Acia Gray and Tapestry patiently worked with me and encouraged me to not just walk but to DANCE. This has been transformative, healing not only my body but my spirit.
WHY DONATE TO TAPESTRY (a 501c3 non-profit)?
As funding for arts in schools disappears, Tapestry's outreach and scholarship programs are more important than ever. Your donation will go towards tuition and shoes for kids who would not otherwise get the opportunity to study dance.
AND WAIT, THERE'S MORE: I will match every dollar up to $500.00! Please help ... every dollar helps. Thanks so much!
