My site, mysylph.com has a new Donate Button. It looks like this and can be found on the Home page. If you Like my blog, my research, any of the articles or News, a donation of any amount is greatly appreciated. It isn’t going to be a major source of income, but it will help me to not only feel appreciated, but continue to write. For now, pretty much any donations that I receive will probably go to helping my daughter continue her training, even if it a hot chocolate, toe tape or a pair of pointe shoes-you would be helping a dancer, and me. Any donation will automatically receive an email, thanking you, with a chapter of my book, Differences of Movement attached. If you contribute $10.00 or more you will also get an entire copy of that book. I do not have much else to offer until the next book comes along. 🙂

The Harkness Foundation for Dance announced on Sunday that it would distribute $5 million in grants over the next decade to five organizations that support dance. The recipients are the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Joyce Theater, City Center, the 92nd Street Y and the NYU Langone Medical Center’s Hospital for Joint Diseases, which houses the Harkness Center for Dance Injuries. Each organization will receive $1 million, making this the foundation’s largest grant to date. Plans for the funding include support for dance presentation at the academy; a new performance series at the Joyce; renovations at City Center; a new residency program at the 92Y; a new boardroom at the Hospital for Joint Diseases; and the development of online courses about dance injuries and treatment.
