Impact Statement

Sarasota Contemporary Dance is excited to continue bringing innovative dance to Sarasota through energetic performances, educational programs, and community outreach. An explosive 12th Season provided the Sarasota community with four main productions featuring powerful dancers, multiple guest artists, and original music compositions. The 13th Season promises to bring more collaborations with local musicians, new works from various Guest Artists, and of course, inspiring displays of dance.

SCD's educational footprint has continued to expand. National Water Dance of 2016 and 2018 brought students from all over Manatee and Sarasota Counties together to represent the area in a nationwide event, while throughout the rest of the year SCD’s teaching artists bring the joy of dance to schools all over the county. In addition, several of SCD’s dancers teach outside of the company in local studios, providing the benefit of their professional training and experience.

SCD engages with dance in all levels through its partnership with Parkinson Place. Artistic Director, Leymis Bolaños Wilmott, provides classes twice a week to give participants the benefits of movement based on the Dance for Parkinson’s Program. Live drumming makes these classes even more special!

Finally, our programming and classes attracted choreographers and teachers from around the world to share their art and talent. As a result, our dancers have grown in technique ability and emotional range, and the local dance community was provided learning opportunities only found in a major dance city.

SCD now has part-time administrative help, and has created a new, more useful website.

Our goals for the coming season include
  • Continue expanding opportunities for emerging choreographers.
  • Dance at 1 or more Festivals nationally in the summer.

  • Maintaining 4 major productions per year at the Cooke Theatre
Needs Statement
2018-2019 is Sarasota Contemporary Dance's (SCD) 13th season which is a testament to SCD's artistic excellence and Sarasota’s acceptance of cultural diversity. In celebration of our 13th season, SCD is planning a full season of 4 concerts. As a result our greatest needs this year are:
  1. Costs of a 4 production season $100,000 (choreographers, dancers, artistic director, theater, ticketing, including subsidized student tickets, costumes, props, printed programs). Our goal is to have 3 of the 4 programs fully sponsored (we currently have 1 sponsor for the 13th season)
  2. Management, Marketing and Administration $50,000 (to facilitate the production and promotion of our programs, coordinate grant writing process, develop and manage donor relationships, and other funding sources)
  3. Broaden and strengthen our Board of Directors and volunteer base, seeking specific skills and backgrounds, especially in the area of fundraising.
  4. Now that SCD has obtained its own space and is now rooted in our community we want to continue to fill our space with supporters of SCD. That will allow us to continue to achieve choreography development, rehearsals, administrative functions, and storage of costumes, props and sets - $70,000.
Background Statement

In 2002 Bolaños Wilmott and Inman created Fuzión Dance, the first professional contemporary dance company in Sarasota. In 2006, they formed Fuzión Dance Artists (now Sarasota Contemporary Dance) as a non- profit 501(c)(3) corporation.

Sarasota Contemporary Dance (SCD) is now recognized for its collaborative performances and eclectic choreography which fuses various dance styles – traditional, modern dance, Middle Eastern, aerial dance, Afro-modern, and technologically-infused work. In addition to a variety of community collaborations and performances at local venues, SCD has also been presented at the Alabama Ballet Center for Dance, John F. Kennedy Center, Merce Cunningham Studio Theatre, and the Ailey Citygroup Theatre.

The company’s educational outreach complements performances by year-round offerings of diverse school performances, master classes, and weekly dance classes, and builds partnerships with local art and community organizations. Since 2007 SCD has reached approximately 10,000 students in K-12 in the community. Additionally, the company offers a variety of physically integrated dance and movement modalities to people in different stages of their lives and abilities, including an ongoing twice weekly Dance for Parkinson class at the Parkinson Place.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President

The first time I saw Fuzion Dance Artists (now Sarasota Contemporary Dance) I couldn't believe that this existed in our little city of Sarasota -- I had to check to make sure I wasn't in New York or LA!   The performance I saw was edgy, surprising, emotional, and wholly satisfying.  I've always been obsessed with dance, and having just moved to Sarasota, both my wife Monique and I were excited about this discovery.  The next thing I knew I was on the Board, and now President of this really interesting dance company.  The challenges are many -- most modern dance exists on the fringe, with tiny budgets and tiny audiences.  At Sarasota Contemporary Dance, we have already transcended "fringe" status.  We are a small but important part of the Sarasota arts scene.  Over the last two years, we have emerged as a fully professional performing arts organization, with a full season of breathtaking dance each year, a rehearsal studio under construction in the Rosemary District, and a budget multiple times larger than just a few years ago.   Over the next few years, our goals art to pay our dancers a bit better, bring an executive director on board, find a anchor donor for our new studio, and bring our company on tour during the summer months.  If we succeed, we'll have added a full time professional contemporary dance company to Sarasota's cultural mix, and established  a legacy of cutting edge dance on the sun coast.  We are fortunate to have Sarasota Contemporary Dance here in Sarasota, and hope you'll join us in nurturing and supporting this wonderful dance company.

Sarasota Contemporary Dance (SCD) collaborates with artists of varying disciplines to create innovative programming which exposes the audience to the imaginative and surprising elements of today’s modern dance forms. The strength and diversity of our dancers and collaborators has attracted choreographers from the broader dance world.  Having been described as explosive and soulful, the artists of SCD aim to enlighten, expose, and entertain audiences of varying backgrounds! 

In January 2016, Sarasota Contemporary Dance partnered with Selah Freedom to produce Company Dancer Mary Allison’s “Exploited,” a heart wrenching performance showcasing the horrors of human trafficking. The attendance of performances has continued to increase with the highest level of tickets sales during SCD’s Annual Concert “Retrospect” in March 2016. Featuring five works by Artistic Director, Leymis Bolaños Wilmott, there was something for everyone in this exciting performance!

These programs showcase a professional dance company capable of performing a wide range of contemporary works accessible to audiences of all backgrounds. Inspirational and stimulating, each work presented is fresh and inventive. The choreography offers an engaging perspective on the range of artistic expression and redefines what contemporary dace can be. The diversity of the dancers- ethnically, culturally, socially, body shapes—broadens our appeal and accessibility. Our performances contribute artistically to the cultural richness of Sarasota County and prove that a contemporary dance thrives in Sarasota.

Seven months into the partnership with the Parkinson Place program, Parkinson’s Place increased the class offering from once a week to twice a week. Additionally Parkinson Place commissioned SCD to create an original work incorporating company members and Parkinson Place participants, which was performed at the Jane B. Cook Theatre in December 2013.

Dance for Autism:

After a successful semester long partnership with Fruitville Elementary School, we are in discussion of returning to further develop a more substantial, and long standing, curriculum working with ASD Elementary aged (specifically Pre-K and Kindergarten) students. We are currently seeking funding and partners to continue developing this program. Students who participated in the Fruitville program last year experienced increased imitation, emotional engagement, referencing, expressive language, and joint attention.  


Sarasota Contemporary Dance (SCD) provides various K-12 outreach and educational dance programs for all ages and abilities including in-school workshops, k-12 special needs, Arts Integration, and after-school programs.

SCD’s dancers include certified teaching artists as well as experienced classroom teachers. SCD explores movement as a means of communication with the students while incorporating the four basic elements of dance: body, energy, space, and time. We also provide follow up lessons for the classroom teachers and tools for getting their kids up, moving, and creating. Workshops can be designed for 6 to 12 visits or more and can be utilized with co-teaching a classroom lesson with a teacher to help with a specific subject area. 

SCD worked with about 80 students from Manasota County during National Water Dance of 2016. This nationwide event allowed students to dance at the Bradenton Riverwalk, while being livestreamed across the country.

Financial Comments by Organization
Sarasota Contemporary Dance's initiatives to improve our financial health are showing fruit.  Our budgets have grown significantly, almost tripling in 5 years.  We are providing more concert and invited programming, and our educational offerings attract teachers and students from around the country.  We have begun to pay for part-time administrative staff.  The 2015-16 season, our 10th, included 5 concerts, so we were able to offer series discounts and maintain a fair single ticket price.  As a result, our attendance and ticket revenues were the highest ever.  
 We began our first Annual Fundraising Campaign this spring and are about half way to our $100,000 goal.  We are asking for multi-year commitments.  This will be essential if we are to lease our own rehearsal and office space.
