ACHF Arts Access
More Minnesotans, especially those in the Southwest Minnesota Region, will be able to participate in the arts.We will measure success through information derived in audience surveys, local performer feedback session and third party interviews with local presenting partners. Questions asked will include: Have you ever attended a professional dance performance in the past? If yes, Where? On a scale of 1 - 10 how much did you enjoy this event? Did you feel you received value for the ticket price paid? Would you attend again? Have you ever watched a video of yourself dancing before? Was your experience of seeing yourself on the screen a positive experience?
Our goal was to introduce professional, contemporary ballet to our community. I think we did this in a very successful manner. All three surveys included a question about participating in a similar event again in the future. We had 65 people respond to our survey. 63 reported in the affirmative. Another goal we had was to involve local students in a professional dance experience. We were able to do this. Their responses to the questionnaire were quite heartwarming. They indicated that this was a very positive experience that they hoped to do again and that they loved to perform and watch professionals perform. Our attendance did not meet the numbers projected in our grant. However we did have well over 100 people in attendance when we included local performers and volunteer workers at the Palace. We believe this is an excellent attendance for a dance event.
