Summer Show 2017 Once Upon A Time: Request for Sponsorship
Nearly five years ago we opened our Italia Performing Arts dance studio in Winchester. Last year we opened our second studio in Edinburg. Our mission is to promote the performing arts in the northern Shenandoah Valley and beyond. We specialize in teaching classical ballet in the Italian style of our CEO and School Principal, Lorenza Manara Marchi.
Since we opened we have grown rapidly to become one of the region’s leading schools for children and teens to study ballet and other styles of dance. Our Summer Shows 2015 Cinderella and 2016 Snow White were widely appreciated by audiences of more than 700 paying guests each.
We are now preparing over 100 students to take part in our Summer Show 2017, Once Upon A Time, our own compilation of dances taken from favorite fairy tale ballets. This will be performed on Saturday June 17th, at Millbrook High School, Winchester. This year again we are offering two performances, and we expect to sell between 800 and 1000 tickets, mostly to family and friends of students at both our studios.
We are asking local businesses and others, in the Winchester and Edinburg areas, to sponsor our Summer Show by advertising in the show program. We will be giving this program to everyone in our audience, It will be printed in full color on folded letter size paper (5½” wide, 8½” high).
See the attached form for ordering instructions, for full, half and quarter page advertisements. Please reserve your space by May 20th.
We hope that in this way you will be able to support our school and help us to bring the wonder of dance to the young people of the Valley.
Lorenza Manara Marchi, CEO and School Principal, and Peter Kirk, Business Manager
