2K Kickoff Challenge - Make your donation count twice as much!

WOO HOO!! One of Monkeyhouse's long time donors wants to kickoff our fall fundraising efforts by matching the first $2000 in donations. That's right even if you can only give a few dollars, your gift will be worth twice as much.

Did you know this blog has attracted visitors from over 57 countries on 5 continents in the last year? That's right, folks from as far away as Qatar and Chile have been checking in for our interviews with innovative choreographers. Please help us expand our Conversing with Choreographers project as we head into 2010.

Of course, Monkeyhouse is more than just a blog of tantalizing tidbits from the dance world. Our award winning nonprofit connects communities to the art of choreography. Founded in 2000 and voted "Best Dance Company in Boston" for 2006 & 2007 by the Boston Phoenix Readers' Poll, Monkeyhouse regularly performs at the Multicultural Arts Center in Cambridge, MA and First Night Boston.

We have premiered over 30 pieces and 6 evening length works and presented work by emerging choreographers in New York, NY, Chicago, IL, Woodstock, VT, Minneapolis, MN, Philadelphia, PA, San Francisco, CA, Rochester NH, Woodstock VT, and Winnipeg, MB. These works have been featured in Dance Magazine, Philadelphia Magazine, Boston Magazine, SF Arts Monthly, and Time Out New York and received rave reviews in the Village Voice, The Chicago Reader, Boston Herald, Boston Globe, and San Francisco Chronicle.
