February 2009 Update

Sanspointe just began it’s 7th year, and I want to share with you what we’ve been up to so far in 2009…and what is still to come!In January we performed “Pack” for hundreds of audience members at the Alabama Dance Festival Showcase at the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Complex along with dozens more dance companies throughout Alabama.

Our biggest most exciting news is that we are now recognized as a Public Charity and exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Therefore, contributions to Sanspointe are deductible. It didn’t take us long to put a donation link on our web site! Check it out: http://www.sanspointe.org/ ! In March we will kick off our 2009 campaign to raise funds.

This month we hosted a community dance day including an Open Company Class and a Community Movement Improvisation. More than 20 friends joined us for the classes, and we had a great time!

We recently began rehearsals for our annual May concert to be held the 28th-31st. We will present 7 dances by Sarah Berry, Kim Guion, Michelle Hamff, John McLaughlin, Rhea Speights and myself. I hope you will mark your calendar now for those dates!
Please check our web site often and join our group on Facebook.

I will keep you updated as we continue to work on new dances in 2009 and perform throughout the community.Until Soon,
Shellie Chambers
Artistic Director
