Full FY 2019/20 Donor List

Dear friends of Keshet,

Thanks to your support, Keshet’s FY19-20 was one of growth and innovative programming, as well as strength in our community, as we faced the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic together, and saw a nationwide reckoning with the hundreds-of-years-old pandemic of systemic racism. To read our response to COVID-19, click here. To see our letter to the community reinforcing our commitment to social and racial justice, click here. 

This Annual Report highlights a year of community impact through dance, mentorship, and a creative space for the arts, made possible by YOU, Keshet supporters, partners, artists, and audience members. Thank you for joining Keshet to make a difference and advocate for the transformative power of the arts. I hope you’ll join us this coming year, as we celebrate Keshet’s 25th anniversary season!

With gratitude,

Shira Greenberg
Keshet Founder and Artistic Director

Community Education and Performance

Dance changes lives. Keshet believes all bodies are dancing bodies, offering multi-generational classes and performance opportunities for all physical and developmental abilities. Classes are available at all levels, ages, and abilities from beginner to professional; from age 2 to 102. 

This year, Keshet offered 1,689 classes across a variety of dance styles. While 781 students (unduplicated dancers including KP3 and JUMP students) took class with Keshet throughout the year, many attended regularly with a total
of
13,281 unique class visits throughout the year.

Dance changes lives. - LEARN MORE -

 

With a commitment to inclusivity, Keshet challenges economic barriers to dance by providing access regardless of a family’s financial situation.  Keshet offers an unlimited, non-competitive scholarship program for dancers under 18 years old, and an Adult Class Exchange program for dancers over 18, providing classes at reduced or no cost to the student. Your generous donations to Keshet’s Scholarship Fund help make this possible. 

Little Dancer Big Dancer Breakfast

In February 2020, Keshet’s Little Dancer Big Dancer Breakfast invited young dancers to take a free class at Keshet, while also inviting Keshet community families to enjoy breakfast together and support the Scholarship Fund. KP3 students practiced their mentorship skills by assisting in these classes for younger students – an exciting and meaningful connection for Keshet’s littlest dancers to get to dance with the pre-professional students. With support from a matching donor, the Breakfast raised $1,714 towards Keshet’s unlimited, non-competitive youth scholarships.

Keshet’s Pre-Professional Education

2019/20 Keshet’s Pre-Professional Program (KP3) students

Your support fuels enthusiasm for personal growth and excellence amongst Keshet’s pre-professional students. Keshet’s Pre-Professional Program (KP3) provides comprehensive programming for students to pursue focused training in dance technique, choreography, and performance; preparing them for a career and/or higher education in their fields of interest. Similarly, Just Unlimited Movement Possibilities (JUMP) is designed to meet the needs of dancers ages 6 to 18 who desire more engagement with Keshet Community Classes, in preparation for participation in Keshet’s Pre-Professional Program (KP3).  

In the 2019 – 2020 school year, 32 KP3 students, ages 8 to 18 years old, spent 7 – 16.5 hours per week engaging in in-person technique class instruction (this moved to remote formats March – May, 2020). KP3 students also participated in an additional 2 – 12 hours per week of rehearsal time for fall outreach performances, Alice, an adventure of wonder and wondering, and 20/20 Vision: the 14th Annual KP3 Spring Concert.

Keshet has been a place to grow my love for dance. All of my teachers are so passionate about what they do and they encourage me to work my hardest in everything that I do. The KP3 faculty are my biggest mentors and I am thankful for each one of them. — J. Trujillo


Community Performance

Keshet creates opportunity to highlight the talent of our local and regional community, with Keshet Community Performances including: Alice, an adventure of wonder and wondering, Winter Concert, Choreographers’ Showcase, and the first ever, virtual KP3 Spring Concert Drive-In!

Final bow for Keshet’s Alice

2019 Cast of Alice, Photo Credit: Pat Berrett

Conceived, choreographed and directed by Shira Greenberg, Alice, an adventure of wonder and wondering – is NOT Alice in Wonderland!  This is Alice’s adventures Keshet-style!  The production was inspired by Shira’s Safta (grandmother), Alice – her mother’s mother.  Alice was always ready to take Shira on adventures when she was little, and Alice always believed in Shira’s adventures as she grew up.  Featuring Keshet’s pre-professional students and community performers,  Alice invited audience members to enjoy a celebration of imagination and unlimited possibilities.

This community production, created in 2017, had its final (for now) performances in December 2019. Read more about Alice, an adventure of wonder and wondering, in this 2017 Huffington Post article by Manuel Montoya.

Keshet Ideas and Innovation Community (KIIC)

Performing arts Makers came from the UK and across the USA.

Keshet’s Ideas and Innovation Community (KIIC, pronounced “kick”) is a business incubator and resource for arts entrepreneurs; championing the value of the artist and the arts economy.

Your support of KIIC provided an authentic space for arts entrepreneurs to grow as artists and entrepreneurs.

KIIC welcomed performing arts Makers from across the United States and the UK for Makers Space Residencies at the Keshet Center for the Arts. The final cohort of Makers Space Experience artists, scheduled for late March 2020, was postponed due
to COVID-19.

The Keshet Makers Space Experience (MSE) is a residency program in which choreographers/ dancemakers have access to space to develop their craft and their products, at whatever stage that might be – and have access to arts business workshops on a variety of topics ranging from Grant Writing, Intellectual Property, Budgeting and Branding for Creatives, assisting in the process of bringing art to market.

Movement + Mentorship = Metamorphosis (M3)

Perhaps Keshet’s least public-facing program is one that has been tirelessly working
to affect change in New Mexico’s juvenile justice system since 1997.

Keshet’s M3 Program (Movement + Mentorship = Metamorphosis) uses the vehicle of dance to engage, educate, and empower incarcerated and paroling youth and young adults. 

The impact of M3 - LEARN MORE -

Keshet’s teaching faculty of professional dancers and teaching artists facilitate daily dance classes as part of the credited high school curriculum on site at the Youth Diagnostic and Development Center and Camino Nuevo Youth Center, New Mexico’s state juvenile prison facilities, to provide a holistic environment for students to learn literacy, math, science, and conflict resolution through dance and choreography. Students completing these courses can then continue their work with their Keshet mentors through pre-release and post-release programming while they transition out of the facility, providing a structured mentorship program through the parole and reintegration process.

Arts and Justice Network (AJN)

Movement for Mercy, Pictured (L-R): Lara Segura, Jaden Adeyemi, Juliana Gorena, Photo Credit: Pat Berrett

This fiscal year, Keshet launched New Mexico Arts & Justice Network (NMAJN), in collaboration with community partners to support system-impacted youth within the full juvenile justice continuum via the arts. The Network focuses on direct services and professional development/peer learning, research and evaluation, and youth-driven policy/advocacy initiatives, supporting local and national juvenile justice reform.

Social justice through dance - LEARN MORE -

The NMAJN stemmed from Keshet’s past 23 years (1997-2020) of teaching within the juvenile prison system, creating and implementing our M3 Program. Through the evolution of M3, we were struggling to figure out how to reach more individuals, and make more of a systemic impact rather than merely the “triage” efforts we felt we were doing.  This led to conversations with the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation about codifying our curriculum and piloting it in other locations across the country in an effort to scale impact. And while this initiative (implemented in 2016-2018) was “successful”; we realized we were still in triage mode, and still not making lasting changes.

Keshet then delved into a two-year+ planning process (2018-2020), with the support of the McCune Charitable Foundation via the New Mexico Collaborative Zone Grant, gathering experts across and intersecting the fields of arts and justice.  This planning process led to a clarity of three main focus areas: Direct Service, Policy/Advocacy, and Research/Evaluation; and led to the creation of Keshet’s newest program: the New Mexico Arts and Justice Network (NMAJN), with clarity that “Network” in this program’s context is a verb, rather than a noun. Thanks to the support of a 3-year, $1,000,000 investment from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the NMAJN formally launched in 2020.

Youth Leaders 

Keshet’s Youth Leadership program within the New Mexico Arts and Justice Network supports the unfiltered voices of system-impacted and justice-oriented youth advocates through a judgment-free process within which these voices can be included, explored, and honored. We believe it is important to hear these voices, and we amplify the voices of these youth and young adults through the vehicle of the arts.

In partnership with the City of Albuquerque, three of Keshet’s Arts and Justice Network Youth Leaders were summer interns with the Mayor’s Creative Youth Corps.  They continued their work with Keshet at the intersection of arts and justice as part of a 27-person corps of youth interns working in varied areas of the vibrant arts sectors of ABQ. 

In addition to being part of the creation process of a new performance piece with Keshet Company members, Movement for Mercy, Keshet’s three youth leaders involved in this summer internship worked on multiple independent and collaborative projects over the summer that were presented virtually in June, 2020.

Movement for Mercy

The Movement for Mercy Project is an umbrella title to ongoing and evolving content development inside and outside prison walls resulting in presentations ranging from intimate performance experiences to full-scale productions, all with a lens of instigating dialogue about the US prison system and educating community members that might not otherwise have access to a window into this particular broken and destructive US system.  Like many (interconnected) broken systems in the US, it can be easy to ignore if it does not impact one directly and prison system issues can feel particularly foreign for non-impacted community members as these systems are not only socially ignored, but physically removed from sight.

As we know, the arts are a critical tool which can successfully shine a light on systemic issues, generating connection, empathy, and understanding – often better than any other tool of learning. The arts speak to our humanity, and our ability to viscerally connect with an issue via the experience of our fellow humans.

This 2020 live dance performance premiered in February with a work in progress showing, which was later adapted to a virtual platform for expanded public showings. MfM 2020 centered around the themes of community, relationships, shared history, and intersections of experiences. Co-created and performed by a team of collaborating artists from Keshet Dance Company, students from Keshet’s M3 Program, Youth Leaders from Keshet’s Arts and Justice Network, and additional members of the Keshet community, this production was created inside and outside of prison walls. How does the physical space and lived experience of freedom vs. incarceration influence the collaborative creation process and ultimately the artistic product? How do different voices and different perspectives on the performance themes influence movement choices?  This unique performance experience was followed by a Q&A with the artists discussing the work, the creative process, and the intentional and transformative intersections of arts and juvenile justice.

Volunteers

You support Keshet in so many ways! Keshet thrives with the help of so many community volunteers offering hours of service every year. This year 258 volunteers provided over 4,000 hours of time, keeping Keshet Center for the Arts clean, organized and up-to-date with fresh paint and a new lobby space for families to gather while students are in class. From weekly volunteers keeping things going around the space, to special school and business volunteer groups, to our Board, Committee, and advisory volunteers, we rely on you, our community of volunteers to help keep us connected and ready for whatever changes come our way.

I really can’t say enough about how much Keshet means
to me. Dancing has always brought health, healing, and
joy into my life but dancing at Keshet has helped me learn what it means to be a part of a community. I am also tremendously grateful for the mentorship that my daughter has received from other Keshet dancers.  — T.Palmer

Fine Wine Dance live Zoom class

Nothing embodied Keshet’s value of fluidity as much as the global COVID-19 pandemic. On March 12, 2020, Keshet Dance & Center for the Arts closed all in-person programming. Keshet staff began working from home with regular check-ins to the building and thorough cleaning. 

With your valuable support, Keshet’s programming pivoted to quickly learn and adapt to remote dance education and engagement methods. Ensuring that dance programming is available and accessible to all dancers, including dancers and choreographers with differing physical and/or developmental abilities, Keshet began offering an all ages, all abilities free Weekly Online Dance Party via Zoom. Keshet’s Pre-Professional Program (KP3) immediately implemented live Zoom dance classes, weekly virtual workshops to bring program participants together, regular mentorship check-ins between teaching faculty and students, and more…

As always, I’m deeply inspired by Keshet’s commitment to create opportunities for dancers. Not even a global pandemic can stop Keshet from creating unlimited possibilities through dance! — J. Hillsey

M3 Team meeting on Zoom

The M3 Program suspended our in-person programming at YDDC and CNYC the week of March 23rd, 2020. Due to the limited technological access allowed within secure facilities, all M3 lessons were required to be sent in and completed in a written format. In response, the M3 Team shifted away from our usual curriculum, and focused on providing our students with activities that were accessible in this new format, and intended to keep them active, connected, and creative. These assignments included choreographic exercises, poetry prompts, workouts, mindfulness practices, visual art assignments, and more. In addition to sending in daily assignments, the M3 Faculty set up a call schedule directly with the units we were working with, and were able to talk to our students several times a week through the end of the semester in June. In place of the students’ final performances, the M3 Team created a short dance film showcasing choreography our students had learned prior to COVID, as well as choreography built from prompts provided by our students during COVID. We were able to send the video to all of our students in closure of the semester. 

The Movement for Mercy Project had grand plans for the summer of 2020! With a multi-week, multi-city tour planned for the East Coast, Keshet quickly re-imagined and re-formatted Movement for Mercy to an online format, presenting multiple viewings and discussion opportunities with the artists, instead. This program shift was made possible by the creative and flexible team of the Movement for Mercy Artists, and support from the City of Albuquerque’s Cultural Services Department via the Urban Enhancement Trust Fund’s COVID Relief Fund.

Developing best practices for virtual engagement during April/May, the Keshet Dance Summer session, included live online dance classes for community dancers, additional pre-recorded classes for younger dancers and Summer Dance Challenges “Dance Camp In-a-bag”. Summer Dance Challenges were week-long themed movement activity bags, collected by campers in a “drive-by” from the Keshet parking lot each Monday, to be used during the week from home. These included daily online warm-ups via Zoom, crafts, scavenger hunts and movement challenges. With your support, Keshet continues to explore meaningful ways to keep our community safe, connected, and dancing as we weather this global pandemic together.

Keshet has opened new possibilities for a shy kid. Keshet has encouraged my daughter to be organized and focused. The online classes via zoom keep her sane. — Parent L.P

Reimagining the Possibilities

During one of the most challenging times for all of our community, you came together to support Keshet and advocate for the value of the arts as donors to the Reimagining the Possibilities Campaign. Faced with over $100,000 in revenue lost with the cancellation of in-person programming and performances, Keshet was bolstered by meaningful gifts from individual community members during this challenging time. With the support of a matching sponsor, Kris and Steve Wade of UnityBPO, 106 community members gave over $20,000 to support Keshet and our creative community through the Reimagining the Possibilities campaign and virtual fundraising event.

Keshet’s community support comes from diverse revenue sources, including foundation grants, government support, corporate sponsorships, and individual donations, as well as the valuable support received from classes and ticket sales. Your support makes it possible for Keshet to offer programming out in the community and through the Unlimited, Non-competitive Youth Scholarship program. 80% of Keshet expenses go directly to programming needs.
