Keeping dance alive

The Nonprofiteer (a sometime dance critic and reporter, in one of her other lives) loves this story: how the Dance Notation Bureau in New York, the nation’s repository for dance scores, brought itself back to life through a combination of incredible staff dedication and ferocious five-minutes-past-midnight fundraising.  The accomplishment is all the more remarkable because dance is often considered a female art form, and it’s particularly difficult to raise money for anything suspected of being a woman’s cause. 

Even those who argue that the main problem of the charitable world today is too many nonprofits can’t help but be inspired by the way an agency with a unique mission kept pursuing it in the face of all odds.
