Martha Graham Emerges Video Dance performance

As a retired teacher living through the challenges of 2020 I am more inspired than ever to make a difference in our world! With Zoom meetings and countless new global friends, I have created a company called “Moving the Arts Through the Universe,” through which businesses and fundraising groups can hire musicians, dancers, sculptors, poets, theater groups and other artists to perform at their virtual events. As part of this arrangement the artists agree to donate a portion of their fees to charity. This initiative has the potential to expose artists to a global audience! Decades ago my students and I made buttons that read “Get Global.” As we now pivot to a virtual world, I am earnest about getting the arts and business to work together in this endeavor for both local and international causes.
