In addition to an annual production I’m even more proud of the work the company has been
doing for students. With shelter in place there was a lack of outlets for children to play, exercise,
and release their energy. EDT focused on motion-based curriculum to address this need in a fun,
easy, and entertaining approach for the health and well-being of these children. I’m proud of
how the company responded to challenges that 2020 brought, embraced our new reality, and
delivered a new approach to accomplish our mission statement.
As we come to the close of an atypical year, we reflect on the nature of site-specific dance. The
practice itself approaches obstacles as opportunities, challenging movers to navigate social, cultural,
and physical landscapes in thoughtful ways. Epiphany entered its 23rd season awakened to how
natural disaster, pandemic, civil unrest, and political disruption affects our global community. During
this historic time, we’ve found inspiration in the ways we’ve grown more united. We are grateful for
the support of our contributors, community partners, audience, schools, and artists who have given
us the gift of remaining deeply embedded in San Francisco and beyond. We look forward to nurturing
these connections as we enter the new year and dance our way toward our 25th year!
As President of the Board of Epiphany Dance Theater I am proud of the work of our creative team of
artists that were able to quickly pivot in the first quarter of the year to reframe the experience of
dance making and performance viewing. Our 23rd Season allowed us to continue to provide
community outreach and entertainment by making our work available online through social media
and virtual platforms. We thank our continued list of funders, especially those who have been with
us for many years, and those new to the Epiphany Dance Theater family. As our strong mission to
serve a diverse audience base while providing socially relevant and thought provoking material
continues, we hope to remain at the forefront of our funding partners missions. We also thank the
many individual donors that support the work that has touched their hearts, expanded their minds,
brought joy to their lives, and enhanced their experience of community. We remain financially viable
in these challenging times, and with this support, we intend to continue to provide creative work
that employs dance professionals, artists, and others as we build a social network of inclusiveness.
Our staff and board, our dancers, musicians, and performers, as well as our teachers, students, and
audiences, reflect the hope and vision we have for a world where all people are treated with dignity
and respect. Thank you for being a part of the Epiphany Dance Theater community.
