Citie Ballet is looking to build new relationships with Edmonton’s corporate community. We can offer your organization the opportunity to leverage communications, client and employee recognition, and philanthropic objectives in ways that build goodwill in your community and strengthen your brand identity. We look to align ourselves with business partners that genuinely understand the tangible benefits of supporting a local Arts organization. We can creatively adapt deliverables that make sense with your needs and celebrate your generosity publicly.
Marking a specific artistic work with your brand gives you premium visibility through websites, social media, printed materials, and lobby signage as well as opportunities for hosting clients and colleagues at performances in our Lexus VIP lounge.
Invest in the creation of an original ballet by our choreographers, composers and performers. Citie Ballet prides itself on creating new made-in-Edmonton works each year. We have a wealth of collaborative and creative partnerships to draw upon and we are always excited to be able to realize our goal of enlisting other creative individuals to work alongside us. Your sponsorship will allow us to expand the notion of ballet to include live music onstage, actors interwoven into stories, local designers to create costumes and more importantly, young brilliant, emerging choreographers who will build moving, dynamic pieces to present to you. By helping us, you are rewarded with lasting visibility as underwriter of the work through websites, electronic promotions, printed materials, social media platforms, and lobby signage, as well as opportunities for hosting clients and colleagues at performances.
Your package also includes:
Sponsoring a single performance during the run of a production can offer you unique exposure and special hosting opportunities. You will receive logo recognition in our production program, on-site signage in the lobby the night of the performance, and up to 25 tickets to host your clients, employees or business network. We have a VIP lounge area for private gatherings and access to catering and bar services.
Your package also includes:
Sponsor Citie Ballet’s new program to provide performance tickets to deserving families that could not otherwise afford to attend the ballet. We engage with various social service agencies and community organizations in Edmonton to distribute tickets free of charge. These families benefit from having a positive experience attending a live arts event, as well as from developing healthy connections with their parents, caregivers and siblings. We treat our families to complimentary post-show delectables to ensure they have a memorable, complete experience together with us. We are committed to allocating 10% of the available seating in our main-stage season, which translates into 270 seats, for these families.
One of the most profound expenses of any ballet company is the footwear of our dancers. The average cost of a Pointe Shoe is $140.00 and our ladies can go through a pair each week during the rehearsal process and performance season. That alone amounts to over $30,000 annually. Help keep us en pointe by making a generous donation to this essential fund.
