Contradiction Dance Announces its

First Annual Benefit Performance and Fundraiser:



December 21, 2011

SILVER SPRING, MD — Contradiction Dance will host its first annual benefit performance and auction on Friday, January 6 at 7pm at Round House Theatre-Silver Spring. Tickets are $75 for a single ticket or $100 for two tickets. Tickets are available at

To kick-start the evening, Contradiction Dance will present its highly-regarded production of The Present.  Premiered in October 2011, The Present delighted audience members of all ages with its exploration of joy, energy and vulnerability. “The Present is a physical expression of the greatest gift—this moment,” states Artistic Director Kelly Mayfield.

Mayfield continues, “With a full year of performances and events already in motion—and a world of funding that has become nearly non-existent for the performing arts—we are looking to the support of our immediate community, to begin 2012 in a financially solid position. We are devoted to the DC dance and theater scene and hope to continue to present our work to this community for many years.”

The evening will include:

  • A special performance by Contradiction Dance
  • An exclusive talk-back with the Contradiction artistic team and dancers 
  • A silent auction of superb selection
  • An intimate reception with food and libations

Every contribution allows us to move forward:

  • $75 = one day of studio rental
  • $150 = one dancer to rehearse for a week
  • $250 = two backstage crew members during performances
  • $500 = fabric and contributes to labor costs for costume construction
