THE Modern Dance Company: No Love Lost

In this session you'll get a look at the behind the scenes of making a dance show on stage at the Valentine Theatre. With Covid having shut the doors of organizations not only in Toledo but across the country. These organizations are continuing to try to make art and continuing to function as best as they can as we all wait for the day we can reopen doors and welcome an audience back into our house. Until that time we hope that you keep organizations like the Valentine Theatre and the groups that perform on our stage like THE Modern Dance Company in your thoughts and remember the memories we have built with you. Many of these groups rely on ticket sales and generous donors even during the best of times and even more so now. Even the smallest donations can sometimes mean the world to a group that is working through covid and trying to continue to provide entertainment, art, outreach for students and a place for people to call home.
