The Community Leader Sponsorship is an incredible opportunity for businesses to give back to the greater community. Sponsors select a community group to partner with, and their support goes towards ensuring that the Live Art Dance season remains accessible to the community through tickets. A great way to share the gift of dance with important members of the community!

“I am very excited to be a Live Art Dance Community Sponsor for the 2022/2023 season. When the opportunity arose to contribute to the success of this season’s performances, and offer support to The Youth Project it felt like a double whammy of goodness. The Youth Project is a wonderful organization supporting 2SLGBTQAI+ youth at a time when so many of our kids are finding that their truth does not conform to cishet expectations. They are an incredible resource for families and kids learning to support each other as systemic and powerful barriers are dismantled. This movement is a positive step forward but can sometimes feel scary and unsafe. In those scary, lonely and unsafe moments, 2SLGBTQAI+ youth have a welcoming, safe and affirmative community in The Youth Project programs, volunteers and staff. I am incredibly grateful to have the privilege of supporting two organizations that have a legacy of contributing to the cultural progress taking place in Halifax in a significant way.” – Anne Pyrde
