Entering 2019, Velocity finds itself in a moment of great transition. Our Board President, Owen Davis, would like to offer the following words to our communities as we excitedly turn over a new leaf: 

Dear Velocity friends + family,

We’ve got some end-of-year news for you. Heading into 2019, Velocity Dance Center will be led by dream duo Erin Johnson and Colleen Borst, who will serve as Interim Artistic Director and Interim Managing Director, respectively. The Board of Trustees couldn’t be more grateful for the grit and grace that they’ve given to Velocity through their time with us.

Erin first joined the team in 2014 and has been invaluable as Associate Producer, diligently working behind the scenes to make our artistic programming happen; we’re excited for her to blossom into artistic leadership! Colleen joined us as a Development Manager in early 2017, and has been a steadying force through a year of big questions and organizational change. We are so lucky to have them both guiding the ship until our new Executive Director comes aboard (which we hope to share messaging about sooner than later, so stay tuned)!

On behalf of both Board and Staff, I also want to thank you – DANCE FAM – for hanging with us through this transition. Change can be both scary and exciting, but you showed up for us time and time again. Your presence and commitment is heartening and inspiring. Thank you for showing up for us time and time again. 

Right now we really need your help to go into 2019 strong. If you’ve recently made a gift to Velocity, we couldn’t be more grateful. If you haven’t, you still have a few days to help us reach our end of year goal (and double your impact through a $10,000 matching gift from generous dance champion Case vanRij!) Please consider making a gift to Velocity today and help ensure strong foundations as we move into the future.
