Our partners on the BalletX Corporate Council have a fundamental impact on how we engage with audience members from the Philadelphia region, who in turn become valuable patrons at businesses throughout the Center City and surrounding districts.  By becoming a Corporate Council member, your corporation can align its brand with a cutting-edge creative company in Philadelphia’s arts community, expanding its positive reach and furthering the societal and economic impact of BalletX in our region.

Corporate Council members support BalletX productions, general operations, and community outreach through sponsorships, participation in our annual gala, in-kind support, and employee matching gift programs, among other giving opportunities.  As a Council member, your corporation will receive tiered benefits at multiple giving levels, including prime branding opportunities on season programs, marketing collateral, and event signage; recognition on our website and social media platforms; and invitations to exclusive receptions, after-parties with artists, and backstage events for your employees to enjoy.

The benefits of joining the Council can be uniquely designed to serve your company’s needs. Please contact James Ihde to start this rewarding partnership.
