Dances on the Lakewalk, once an innovative concept, became an established and respected opportunity for artists to highlight their choreography. Dance performances along the Lakewalk now blend the innovative with the established. New faces are given choreographic and performance opportunities in this outdoor setting and the audience gets to enjoy dance works by those established choreographers they may not have seen in recent years. Tracking the number of people attending and participating in the event each year helps us decide the future of the event. Post-performance conversations with audience members play an important role in evaluating the project's success along with post-event meetings with the choreographers, dancers, and board members.
One measurable outcome was financial - by using GoFundMe, we raised money a second time to help pay the dancers and choreographers. For 2016 we raised $700 and for 2017 we raised $1,007. Another measurable outcome is audience attendance - In 2016 we had 390 audience members in attendance and in 2017 we had 575 audience members. Artist participation was also measurable - 30 artists participated in 2016 and 35 artists in 2017.
