To DCDC: With Love
(Four sample letters expressing support for DCDC)
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, DCDC receives not only donations but, in some cases, handwritten letters showing their support with heart-felt words.
Here is the message from the large letter on the right side of the above image. It is addressed to DCDC’s Chief Artistic Administrator & Producing Director Debbie Blunden-Diggs:
I enclose a contribution to the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company.
I very much enjoyed the company’s performances with the Paul Taylor at the Koch Theatre [located in New York City] and your company’s independent program at the Joyce [The Joyce Theatre in the same city].
No one can say when dance companies, musical performances and theatrical plays will start again, but I am an optimist and hope soon. When you do start performing in the New York area let me know so I can support your company in person. Best wishes to you and the company for good health during the pandemic and economic trouble.
We are very heartened by these kind and thoughtful sentiments. With friends like these, we know we have touched lives through the art of dance and community service.
As the letter says, best wishes to you for good health during the pandemic and economic uncertainty!
