Support

Dear Friends,

The Dancing Sun Foundation is seeking corporate/business sponsorship to help support its performing arts company (Dancing Sun Dance Company) and its dance school (School of the Dancing Sun – founded in 1986). DSF is a non-profit organization dedicated to presenting quality, unique contemporary dance rooted in the heritage of Asian/Taiwanese cultures. For almost 2 decades, the Dancing Sun school has developed a reputation for innovative productions and generous community service.

The Dancing Sun Foundation has provided more than a decade of choreographic and teaching excellence in the San Jose area through annual productions and hundreds of classes. DSF also provides rich experiences by sponsoring Taiwanese dance artists’ performances and workshops, and by traveling abroad to perform in international conferences. DSF school recently competed with great success in a statewide dance competition and gives back to the community performing regularly for local events and senior centers. This past year, Artist Director Bih Tau Sung was recognized with two significant awards: the 2005 Artist Fellowship from Arts Council Silicon Valley and the 2005 sjDANCEco Award for outstanding Creativity from sjDANCEco, a San Jose dance company directed by Gary Masters.

In order to continue artistic and community leadership and to fulfill our mission, it is necessary for us to ask for financial support from our audience and the community we serve. Our ticket sales and school tuition do not cover our many ongoing expenses such as salaries, production costs, honoraria for soloists, workshops, and travel abroad.

We ask you to please help us attain our fundraising goal for this year. Please support our efforts and send your tax-deductible donation or pledge. Thank you very much for your consideration.

Donations may be sent to:
