The seven Momentum dancers featured below have been chosen to study and perform urban aerial (or vertical) dance in the upcoming Light Brigade performance on the Anchorage Museum this Fall. We need your help to get them to a training in the bay area in early May. Please sponsor one or more of them by donating Alaska Air miles. There is both a one-way (20K miles) or round trip (40K miles) option available. To sponsor a dancer please fill in the details and submit the form at the bottom of the page.
