All gifts made between June 1-June 30, 2021 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000 by a generous donor who is in sync with our strategic priorities!
Please make your gift today, and know that your support will have double the impact to help us get our Action Heroes back on the stage and our Teaching Artists full force at SLAM as we emerge from a challenging time rattled but resilient.

We at STREB believe in making an IMPACT! We shake the earth, rattle walls and nerves, and stir the spirits of our students, audiences, and community to change the world through action.  As we emerge from the disruptive but instructive year of the pandemic, we are even more inspired and emboldened to chase the moonshot visions of Elizabeth Streb—to realize in new ways her dream of human flight, and to continue cultivating a community space whose tendrils reach out to encompass and engage the entire global community through a commitment to, and embodiment of our open access ethos.

To thrive and adapt in the new future, we ask you to join us in making this IMPACT. Your support will help us invent, create, and share our programming with the world—and then MARS! A gift in any amount will be greatly appreciated.

As we continue to navigate the longer term impacts of Covid-19, we need your support to ensure our survival, and to keep our artists and staff safe and employed. Your gift, in any amount, will allow us to:

– Mitigate the financial impact from cancellations, postponements and changes to our programming;
– Keep our artists and staff engaged and employed;
– Ensure access to our programs for all through our ongoing free programming, scholarship programs and community partnerships;
– Continue to invent and innovate so we can inspire and empower our students
– Share the work and legacy of our founder and artistic director, Elizabeth Streb with the world in new innovative ways;
– Keep our community together, connected, and growing.

We are committed to helping everyone stay present, grounded and empowered through this uncertain time. Though this virus might put some physical distance between all of us, we will continue to investigate the inspiring principles and spirit of STREB safely, in the ways we can during this time.

Make a Tax Deductible Donation to STREB!

Your tax deductible gift allows us to continue to invent, experiment, investigate, and awe audiences through the work of our company. It helps us educate, inspire and empower through our education and community partnership programs, and it helps us provide equal access to everything we do for students and families with financial need.

STREB’s mission is to support and perform the work of choreographer Elizabeth Streb. Built around Streb’s organizing principle “Extreme Action,” a movement style that thrills audiences with choreographed feats of physicality, scientifically planned chaos, strength, risk, grace, and elegance, STREB engages diverse audiences and communities via a broad range of performance and education programming that provides access to, and participation in, creation and presentation.
