CLAVE CIRCLE


CLAVE CIRCLE


CLAVE CIRCLE

The clave is the root of all Afro-Cuban music and movement. It is the rhythm that guides and supports all other instruments and steps. It is the "key"or foundation that holds everything together.

As the clave is the driving force of the music and movement central to our company, so too is CONTRA-TIEMPO's Clave Circle. Clave Circle members are major donors whose compassionate, principled action and influence help sustain and grow our company’s transformational artistic and engagement work. 

For a minimum contribution of $1000 per year (or $84 per month), Clave Circle members receive:

  • Invitations to private rehearsals and feedback sessions for work in development
  • A framed, signed professional photograph of the company
  • Two complimentary tickets to a CONTRA-TIEMPO performance, with VIP seating
  • All of the benefits that G.O.T.A. members receive, in addition to a CONTRA-TIEMPO t-shirt and aluminum/BPA-free water bottle
  • Your name listed as a donor on CONTRA-TIEMPO’s website
