Flash Appeal, 10-13:
Help us Preserve Marie Taglioni's Legacy
Dear Dance Insider,
Now more than ever,
we need YOUR contribution to support our work to restore and preserve
Marie Taglioni's legacy, a legacy we ALL -- dancers, critics, students,
teachers, dance wear and shoe companies -- have profited from.
Thanks to support from
Body Wrappers, the Martha Graham Center, Nicholas Birns, Sara
Sweet Rabidoux and others the Dance Insider was able to reveal
last week that Marie Taglioni is not buried in the grave that bears
her name. We also were able to reveal that Taglioni is apparently
buried under the name of the ex-husband she divorced after he turned
her away from their home because she wouldn't stop dancing. (If
you don't know what I'm talking about, please click here. If you don't know who Marie Taglioni was
and why you should care, write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll explain.)
We will not stop until
Marie Taglioni is properly recognized for who she was. Until all
dancers know where to find her so that they can give thanks.
If you value our campaign,
please tell us so by sending your support -- no amount is too small.
We are offering generous premiums in the form of free advertising
for contributions as low as $50. Write me at email@example.com
for more details.
PS: The Dance Insider
is the ONLY major dance publication delivered to your doorstep for
free. We do this because we feel our work is necessary, and it's
necessary that dancers and others in our profession get the truly
inside story on dance told ONLY in the Dance Insider. Please tell
us that our work matters to you by sending your contribution.
