Philanthropy

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY FEB 20, 2019

In March 2018, Sarasota Contemporary Dance opened its doors to the community with a free “SCD Day of Dance,” to celebrate the company's arrival at its new 3,000-square-foot home in Sarasota's Rosemary District. This January, SCD named its box office/company office after the woman who has been the backbone to the organization since its inception—Muriel Gordon Mayers. Mayers is a founding board member of Sarasota Contemporary Dance, formerly Fuzión Dance Artists, and served as Board President for the first seven years, in addition to Treasurer (a position she still holds today). Trained in ballet at The School of American Ballet, modern at the University of Wisconsin, Mayers also studied technique with Martha Graham and other notable pioneers. The official naming was revealed at Mayers’ surprise 90th birthday party at the SCD home studio, where her daughter, a few community members, friends and her SCD family surrounded her. Mayers, who has assisted SCD Founder Leymis Bolanos Wilmott in everything administratively since the beginning, is a very active board member and still assists the general manager regularly.
