Our dancers are among the best in the world

We believe that world class contemporary dance deserves to be centre stage in Queensland. Over the past 33 years, EDC has created more than 170 works by 75 different choreographers and has enjoyed 22 international tours to 17 countries and 23 major Queensland tours. EDC is defined by its commitment to excellence in performance, sector development and education, all contributing to the evolution and future of contemporary Australian dance.

To continue our evolution, we need your support. Currently, EDC dancers are employed for 41 weeks of the year. Our vision is to provide them with sustainable, full-time employment. Your tax deductible donation goes directly to supporting this vision and the development of our dancers, and helps build the capacity of EDC to be a globally recognised company creating breathtaking dance.

Our Invest in a Dancer patron program is a unique and exclusive opportunity to truly form a relationship with EDC and its artists.  Our Invest in a Dancer sponsors are truly part of the EDC family. There are many benefits to investing in a dancer:

  • Recognition in the program and on the website together with your sponsored dancer/s
  • Invitations to Opening Night and post-show functions
  • Your dancer/s will meet you following the opening night performance
  • Invitations to exclusive Open Rehearsals
  • A personalised Thank You letter from the dancer and regular updates through out the year.

There are 5 shares available for each EDC dancer per year, each valued at $2,000 or $9,000 for 5 shares if pledged all at the same time. The investment period is for one year from the date of your donation.
