A Letter from Igal Perry

For 40 years, PCDC has dedicated itself to presenting dynamic and virtuosic performance, amplifying diverse artistic voices, and providing sustainable social engagement for our NYC community. We have worked to advance this mission through thoughtful commissions, and robust public and educational programming. 


In celebrating this milestone, we are not only reflecting back on years of artistic vigor, but also dreaming forward towards a vision of a more collaborative contemporary dance field. To fuel this growth, we are launching the largest single fundraising drive in our history: The Rise Campaign.


By contributing to the Rise Campaign, you join an international network of dance lovers who champion artistic opportunity and value both the preservation and the development of choreographic voices. Together, we can rise up, and propel PCDC into the next 40 years with strength, vitality, and momentum.

With gratitude,


Igal Perry, Artistic Director

Rise Campaign

THE               CAMPAIGN


$40K    +    $40K



January - June 2023

July - December 2023

Our First Goal 

Uniting and honoring the Legacy of the entire Peridance community, our 40th Anniversary aims to give back to all those who have shaped us. The first $40K of the Rise Campaign will directly support the costs of the Legacy Season and the celebrations that bring generations of Peridance together.

Our Second Goal 

The next $40K of the Rise campaign will contribute to the creation and implementation of PCDC RISE:  Our strategic vision. Guided by Igal Perry and company leadership, this vision harnesses PCDC’s role as an international repertory company to bring together and create opportunities for contemporary dance artists.

Creation of New Work

Often serving as a launchpad for artists, PCDC has commissioned over 27 new works in just the past decade. Facilitating the creative process and amplifying the voices of diverse choreographic voices is crucial to our mission.

Re-staging Repertory

Once an artist sets work on PCDC, we are committed to increasing  its longevity and exposure by re-staging it over the years. As a repertory company, we believe that sustaining work is just as important as creating it.

Dancer Salaries

Each year, our largest expense is 

compensating our dancers for their unparalleled work. Our dancers define us, and their pay is the basis for all that we do. If you would like to sponsor a specific dancer, please contact our development team

Public Programs

Increasing access to dance performance and education is essential to PCDC's mission. We cultivate programs like DanceBreak, and aim to develop new opportunities for community engagement through the Youth Ensemble.


As an international company, we are dedicated to sharing our work with global audiences. Increasing both access to contemporary dance and the company’s exposure, touring is necessary for the company’s continued growth and excellence.
