Dear Jacob’s Pillow Fundraiser Supporters,


Thank you all for helping to get us to Jacob’s Pillow. The students are having an incredible experience. The community here is amazing. We are taking full advantage of being on these historic grounds, connecting with other dance artists, digging through the archives, participating in photos shoots, and watching performances. We are thinking about you as we prepare to perform today. 


With appreciation,

Heather, Raphaël, and the SJSU dancers 

A thank you and an invitation

Hi everyone,


Thank you to all of you that have supported the Dance Program Jacob's Pillow fundraiser.  Because of your generosity, we have reached 112% of our initial goal with still twelve days left in the campaign.  We are grateful for everything you have done.  


This week we began rehearsing for the Jacob's Pillow performance.  Students came back to school two weeks early in order to prepare. We would like to invite you to a special showing of the work, And Suddenly We See, next Thursday, August 15.  It will be an open rehearsal and an opportunity to see the dance before we leave for the festival.  We would love the chance to see you and thank you for your support. We will be in the SJSU Dance Theater and will open the rehearsal from 11:30am-12:30pm.  


There is still time left in the campaign. Even though we have reached our initial goal, additional contributions will help cover the remaining expenses of the trip  If there is anyone you think might be interested in donating, please share the campaign link.


With gratitude,

Heather Cooper, Raphael Boumaila, and the SJSU dancers

Halfway there!
