Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>,
 

In today's edition, we share video footage of a very special project, and we are asking for support for the dancers attending our educational programs. Read on for the details!

Right(s) 


We are thrilled to share with you footage of a project that is very close to our hearts: the Rite of Spring Project.

In 2018, Peter Chu, assisted by 
chuthis. company member Jenni Gordon, premiered a work entitled Right(s) in Charlotte, NC. The project was a collaboration between Charlotte Ballet and Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, created with the objective to bring local communities together. Peter and Jenni worked weekly with approximately 60 young children in the Charlotte community. They then brought the dancers from studio to stage to dance alongside Charlotte Ballet II and Charlotte Ballet Trainees, to the live score of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring.

To get a glimpse of the joy experienced by all, take a look at the video above! Thank you to Allison Thomas for your beautiful editing and for helping us share this story.

We have adjusted our goal in an attempt to raise $3,000 for our CTMI dancers. Every dollar donated from this day forward will go directly towards the support of a dancer in need! All contributions are tax deductible.

RECAP:
chuthis. Performances at Charlotte Ballet 


This past month, chuthis. performed two shows at Charlotte Ballet's Center for Dance. We felt so honored to have both shows filled with friends, family, and the Charlotte community.  We would like to thank each and every person who came out to see us; we hope that the evening left an impression on you. 

We'd also like to give a shout-out to our technical team: Eric Chad, Liz Shinkle, and John Tringas. We are so appreciative of your hard work, and truly couldn't have done it without you! And finally, a huge thank you to the leaders of Charlotte Ballet, Hope Muir and Doug Singleton, for your deep support of chuthis. We felt so lucky to present Smile Masking and paper cuts in an empty bag in such a beautiful space!
