Dana Marie Ingraham
Director of Development
For Dana Marie Ingraham, service to others has been both a passion and a privilege. She has volunteered with AmeriCorps' City Year program, the Cerebral Palsy Center of St. Louis, the St. Patrick Center of St. Louis, and helped rebuild homes with the St. Bernard Project in New Orleans, Louisiana. Some of these wonderful opportunities to volunteer happened many times while on tour with various productions. A firm believer that "Art affects Life affects Art", it has been important to responsibly use her platform as a performing artist to help be of service to the world around her. She has danced with the companies of Armitage Gone! Dance, and Philadanco, among others. Broadway credits include Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark, Motown the Musical, and Hot Feet. She has also performed with the National Tours of The Lion King, Motown the Musical, and The Color Purple. In 1998, Dana was awarded a Presidential Scholar of the Arts Medal from President Bill Clinton.
Creative Director/Director of Programming
Dionne Figgins has over 15 years of professional performance experience as a dance, singer, actress, writer, and choreographer. She became passionate about service as an adult, when she realized bringing art and social awareness together could affect more lives than performing alone. Since 2012, she had been the Team Leader for the BROADWAY SERVES AIDS Walk NY Team, which has raised over $54,000 for the GMHC. She has also coordinated many original programs for BROADWAY SERVES including In the Heights Serves VillageCare, Motown Serves Mapplethorpe, and most recently, BROADWAY SERVES The Children's Aid Society Summer Theater Intensive. She is a proud member of AEA since 2006.
"To Go" Coordinator/Kids Serve Coordinator/Media Director
Born and raised in NYC, Kimberly is no stranger to the intense need for volunteerism, social awareness, and community enrichment. In 1999 she co-founded DAIS, a discussion group for high school students in the NYC/tri-state area surrounding issues of diversity. Since then, she has been an active funds collector while on tour and on Broadway for immediate tornado relief in Memphis, Covenant House, and grant-giving/cause-based organizations such as Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Kimberly is thrilled to take a more active role in marrying her love for the theater and global community, and inspiring both her peers and the next generation of theater professionals to do the same. Broadway and touring credits include The Book of Mormon, Sister Act, Dreamgirls, The Wedding Singer, and The Lion King.
Who's on the Team?
