Why support Blue13?
With our motto “ABIDE,” we center Accessibility, Belonging, Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity in every sphere of what we do. By supporting Blue13, you’re investing in the opportunity for a Black and Brown dance company to tell the stories of our times and advocate for our lived truths.
Your contribution directly funds artistic training, costuming, and salaries of dancers, directors, & staff. In addition to this, donations enable the creation of new pieces that center BIPOC stories which amplify those voices that are so often ignored or overlooked, particularly in concert dance.
Every donation also enables Blue13 to continue increasing accessible programming to students, schools, and underserved communities. We offer classes, performances, and roundtables to share diverse dance forms including Indian dance, contemporary, hip hop, and more to students in historically marginalized Title I schools. Many of these students and communities do not often have the opportunity to see and interact with artists of color. As a BIPOC company, we believe that this representation matters, especially when it comes to young students seeing parts of their own identities and cultures reflected onstage. Help us educate and empower the next generation of BIPOC artists and leaders!
You can be part of ABIDE and make real change happen in our communities. Partner with us as a donor or volunteer today!
Blue13 is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Your donation is tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Please consult your tax advisor for specific guidance on how to claim your deduction. Our EIN is 68-0577544.
