Sponsor the Art of Dance

Dear Friends,

We proudly invite you to join us as either a returning sponsor or by becoming a new sponsor supporting the art of dance in Erie.  For the past eighteen years, Erie Dance Consortium has been striving to foster dance in the Lake Erie region.  The non-profit corporation operating entirely by volunteers was formed to not only celebrate the art of dance through education and performance, but also to build the audience for dance in our community. The Erie Dance Consortium main biennial event is the Erie Festival of Dance – showcasing Erie talent and recognizing the achievements of local dancers, past and present.  The festival gives local dance companies, seasoned professionals and children the opportunity to join as performers and audience members.  While exposing audiences to dance in its many forms, we are reflecting our cultural and ethnic diversity and demonstrating the interrelations of the arts through collaboration with other art forms. In addition, the organization is working toward expanding our community reach and impact through the development and administration of Dance Outreach programs within the Erie area. We look forward to partnering with you and thank you in advance for your consideration.
