Make a lasting impact on the lives of Artists
DID YOU KNOW THE AVERAGE DANCER…
has spent over 10 years training in their field, yet does not earn a liveable wage?
works 50+ hours a week in both dance and non-dance related work?
makes financial sacrifices to remain a dancer?

The many years of dedication required to develop and maintain their skills is comparable to other professionals such as doctors, lawyers and engineers.
Dancers also willingly take physical risks on a daily basis, despite having little or no job security nor access to social services, like pension and unemployment.
If we recognize artists’ contribution to our lives, our well-being and the cities in which we live, shouldn’t we help them thrive?
All artists need their patrons.
Your investment is essential.
It makes the statement that you believe that Art is important and that it makes a difference in your life.
A vibrant city is identified as such by its thriving community of artists that entertain, inform and inspire through their various art forms.
By giving generously you will be joining us in solidarity with the artists whose passion in making Art enlivens, entertains and enriches our lives.
All donations of $25 and above will be acknowledged with a receipt for income tax purposes.
