Two Special DFS Events in October

1. I will be riding in NOLA to Angola, a 160-mile bike ride from New Orleans to Louisiana State Prison. The ride is taking place Oct 14-16. It will be my first visit to Angola, where many of our DFS collaborators are housed, and the ride is also a fundraiser for the Cornerstone Bus Project, which provides free transportation to family members with incarcerated loved ones. You can learn more about the ride and sponsor me by visiting http://www.nolatoangola.org/ and clicking the "donate" button. Make sure to include a note that your contribution is for Sarah Dahnke.

 

2. DFS will be in residence at Brooklyn Studios for Dance to develop a public performance, debuting October 21. The performance will be accompanied by a small gallery show of artwork created by individuals in solitary confinement. All ticket sales will go toward supporting Dances for Solidarity.
