We are seeking copy editing for our non-profit dance company website Safosdance.org which is hosted on wix. We have new information that we would like to include and old information we would like to remove from the site and would love editing and copywriting support with SEO.
This project is important because it provides website marketing and clearly written content that supports a larger narrative centering Latinx bodies, aesthetics, and experiences from the U.S. Southwest on concert dance stages, where such themes are rarely seen. A website copywriter will help Safos professionally present content that represents the cultural diversity of the US/Mexico borderlands, to funders, theatres, and other important parties that may support this needed work.
Safos Dance Theatre is a small non-profit dance company founded in Tucson in 2009. Safos' mission is to create contemporary artistic forms that reflect the common experiences of our diverse community. Focusing predominately on Latinxs, Safos provides a safe space for artists, encourages innovative movements, and uses non-traditional forms and body types to represent the cultural diversity of the US/Mexico borderlands.
Safos Dance Theatre fulfills our mission by offering programs that 1) support the work of Latinx dancemakers and 2) introduce the work of Latinx dancemakers to new audiences in Arizona.
As a small organization, Safos partners/collaborates with other Latinx serving and/or Arizona-based organizations to offer programs that fulfill our mission.
Current programs include: 1) Dance in the Desert (DITD): A Gathering of Latinx Dancemakers which Safos is a collaborator/partner. 2) Las Fronterizas project which is a multiyear multidisciplinary (dance, theater, digital arts) project in collaboration with Rising Youth Theatre (Phoenix), Border Arts Corridor (Douglas), and Teatro Komos (Guatemala City). 3) Support the creation and development of "Stories from Home" a new evening length dance piece by choreographer Yvonne Montoya. Featuring an all Latinx cast, SFH is a series of works inspired by oral histories collected from Montoya's family members. The dances are physical embodiments of the SW Latinx oral traditions; each piece is a story.
