2017 Joedance Festival Season Kickoff
Joedance | March 8, 2017
Charlotte Center City Partners graciously hosted the Joedance Family last week as we celebrated the kick off of the 2017 Festival Season. It was a lovely evening brimming with the excitement of the opening of film submissions. (Please submit your film for consideration online from now until June 1st!)
Delicious hors d’oeuvres and beverages from Local Loaf, Zia Pia, Bonsai Fusion, Sea Level, and beverages from Assorted Table Wine Shoppe and Foothills Brewing were enjoyed by all as they mingled to the elegant tones of Alan Black’s cello.
This is just the beginning! We have lots to look forward to in the coming months: film selections, pop-up events (stay tuned!), and of course the 8th Annual Joedance Film Festival, August 4th and 5th. It is going to be a great year. We look forward to seeing you all at the festival!
Welcome Amanda Drake!

Keeping My Promise
Joedance | February 20, 2017
Thanks to the help and support of the Joedance community, we have been able to help fund a clinical trial for Osteosarcoma, created the paid Joedance Internship Program, and donated over $120,000 to Levine Children’s Hospital to date, all while supporting local Charlotte filmmakers.
“ I made a promise to Joe that I would raise money in Charlotte. I had no idea what that would look like. I think if he was here today, and saw everything that we’ve done, he’d be very proud of it. It’s very special to make a promise, and then seven years later realize that promise in memory of Joe.”
A special thanks to Eric Bridenstine and the Charlotte Checkers for the fantastic work on this video.
