At the EDE Centers for Dance our professional dance teachers offer the highest caliber dance training to local students.
In the community and schools, EDE works to enrich the lives of young people through innovative outreach programs, like Healthy Kids.
In order to continue to develop and expand EDE’s artistic and educational programs for people around the world and those just around the block, we need your help!
Your contribution will help to bring great dance and dance education to our community! Please read below for additional benefits.
Sponsor a Dancer $2,000
EDE’s goal is to attract and retain the finest dancers and to provide those dancers with professional opportunities commensurate with their talent. You can help EDE reach this goal by becoming a Dance Sponsor with a gift of $2,000. Dance Sponsors select an artist from the EDE roster to sponsor over the course of the season. At each performance of that artist on our series, your sponsorship will be announced from the stage and in the performance program. Helping bring great art to our community is a gift unto itself. It is also a great way to honor a friend, remember a family member, or commemorate a special event. You will play a leadership role in fostering a healthy cultural climate for southeast Michigan, and you will help us provide livelihood to the fine young dancers who are central to our mission.
Dancers Available for Sponsorship:
Alicia Cutaia – sponsored by Jennifer & Dan Gilbert for the 2012-13 season

At the premiere of the new dance, you will be listed in the program as a patron of the commission and invited to a post-performance reception with the dancers.
