Santa Fe Dance-A-Thon

This story was published by on December 10, 2015

Dear NDI New Mexico families,

How many NDI New Mexico supporters does it take to change a light bulb?

Our beloved Dance Barns facility is overdue for a lighting renovation. Our lighting system has served us well for over a decade, but its days are numbered.  A generous donor has pledged to match every dollar up to $50,000 to help us upgrade to smart and efficient LED lighting!

Wonderful community members just like you have already contributed over $11,000 to help us reduce waste, lower energy consumption, and increase the quality of our performance space to provide an environment of excellence for the over 17,000 students and community members who will visit The Dance Barns this year.

We need your help to raise an additional $39,000 by December 31, 2015
when our dollar for dollar match expires!

You are an integral part of making The Dance Barns a vibrant community center in Santa Fe. When you, your children, friends and family attend classes and performances here, you will directly benefit from the upgrades that you helped make possible.

Please support our Shine Brighter Match Challenge!

  • Help your child collect $50, $100, or more in pledges to dance in the Dance-A-Thon on Saturday, December 19th from 2:30-5pm. I guarantee you will not want to miss this afternoon—with performances by NDI New Mexico students, games, a DJ hosting dance contests, and prizes! Match your child’s donations dollar-for-dollar to encourage their fundraising.
  • Sponsor the Dance-A-Thon by donating a prize for our top fundraisers and for winners of dance competitions.
  • Make a tax deductible donation on behalf of yourself, your family, or your business. 

We want our lights, and the smiles on our students’ faces to Shine Brighter! 

Thank you for your support of New Mexico’s children,

Stephanie Sample
