Corporate Sponsorships and EITC
Dancing Classrooms Philly has a wide-range of opportunities for companies to sponsor events and programming.
Our High Note High Step events are held annually in Philadelphia and on the Main Line and are attended by Board members, donors, funders, educational partners, and members of the public who are interested in learning more about our work bringing ballroom dance to students across the Philadelphia region. Sponsorship recognition is included at the events, in our annual report, and (with certain sponsorship levels) through social and electronic media and on our website.
Companies also can sponsor our ensemble groups and in-school programs. Our ensembles hold public performances during the year and reach a broad Philadelphia and regional audience. School-based sponsorships occur over the course of a semester or year and provide opportunities to develop a deep relationship with an entire school community. Recognition for these institutional sponsorships is developed in conjunction with the corporate sponsor.
Sponsorships can be customized to support a company’s specific interests or priorities.
