To our Threads community,
Threads staff has been monitoring the development of the COVID-19 pandemic. Consequently, we have made the difficult decision to cancel three upcoming events:
- Threads Company Audition – March 31st
- Bloom: A Spring Fundraiser at Metropolitan Ballroom -April 1st
- Tapestries 5.0 at TekBox Theatre – April 24-26
We do not make this decision lightly but know this is best for our staff, company and patrons.
As you have heard, cancellations such as ours are having a profound effect on the financial health of performing arts institutions and artists world-wide. While we hope to reschedule these events in the future, at this time we are offering two options for your previously purchased tickets – donate the purchase amount to Threads or receive a refund for the purchase amount.
We ask everyone to seriously consider their current purchase as a donation because the Threads family is working diligently to support our part-time dancers and staffers financially as long as possible during this difficult time while also ensuring the organization can sustain beyond the current crisis. For many of our artists, the loss of income due to cancelled performances and other activities is potentially devastating, and any direct support now can help them. If you had not yet made a ticket purchase for Tapestries or Bloom, you can still donate to support Threads during this unprecedented time.
If you are a current ticket holder for a Tapestries 5.0 performance, you will be contacted directly by the Cowles Center box office. The Cowles Center policy is not to issue refunds for purchased tickets. They will either exchange the tickets for future show or patrons may make the purchase amount a donation to Threads.
We are so proud to be part of the Twin Cities dance community. The arts are a source of inspiration, joy and healing. Thank you for your partnership and patience as we work together to keep our community healthy. Stay tuned for more details and updates about rescheduled events.
