SEPTEMBER 1, 2020 – AUGUST 31, 2021 SEASON!

Dear Dancers over 40 Members and Friends,

The Board of Directors of Dancers Over 40 hope you all are well and safe. It’s time to join/renew for the 2020 – 2021 Season.  This is an unprecedented year, and an extremely difficult beginning to our membership renewal efforts.  We understand that this pandemic affects everyone, and repercussions from COVID-19 are not just medical.  Our members are the most vulnerable population in this pandemic. For many, self-isolation is a way of life. 

Please click on our JOIN/DONATE/RENEW menu as soon as possible and do any of those three things by using Paypal or sending in a check and downloading the membership form.  We have a Legacy and a History.  We sincerely hope you can help us continue telling our stories as we pass the torch to the next generation.  Please contact us with any ideas, leads, suggestions or references you may be able to provide to help us financially through this rough time.

It is our mission and goal to keep our community of talented artists together, socially and if not physically, at least virtually with the new technology of ZOOM, as we announce our first ZOOM NATIONWIDE MEMBERS-ONLY MEMBERSHIP MEETING Tuesday, August 25th, 7pm (instructions/invitations will be sent out in August).  We will have guest speakers from the Actors Federal Credit Union, DO40 42nd Street cast members (celebrating the 40th anniversary of opening night!) and more!

We are hoping to host a ZOOM reunion of CONTACT and THE WIZ and would like to continue our annual Legacy Awards December 9th, depending on funding availability and local NYC health guidelines.

All organizations have been hit with losses, especially grant money due to COVID-19.  Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is not funding the Theater-Related Social Services organizations this year due to their COVID-19 fundraising and therefore we did not receive our yearly grant in April. This funding made many of the events you love possible.

We want to stay connected to our mature dance community and friends. This organization is the only lifeline for many of our senior dancers. It will be very difficult for us to keep afloat without your financial support. We must keep up the good fight for our community and everyone who supports us. We need you now!
