Sponsorship Opportunities with Crimson Coast Dance

Sponsoring CCDS comes in many forms. From a financial contribution to discounted materials or services, your distinct sponsorship shows our community that you care about Nanaimo’s cultural scene and about sharing in quality dance experiences.

At any level of sponsorship, Crimson Coast Dance will use its shows, events and festival as your next marketing and promotional vehicle.

Choose a level of support that works for you. Let’s work together on how to make it happen.

There are currently three sponsorship opportunities with Crimson Coast Dance:

Annual Mainstage Series

With a minimum of 3 shows per year, Crimson Coast Dance curates and presents dance performances by high-caliber, world class touring artists, offering the Nanaimo region unique opportunities to witness beautiful, diverse pieces of work that would not otherwise be available.

The Wee Tipple Party

Our biggest fundraiser of the year! The Wee Tipple Party is Nanaimo’s annual Whisk(e)y Festival, running for over 17 years straight. The party, hosted by The Grand Hotel, showcases fine whiskies, delicious hors d’oeuvres, live music, and silent auction, together bringing Nanaimo a night of sophisticated entertainment and a chance to network with local businesses.

InFrinGinG Online

Now entering it’s 22nd year, the InFrinGinG Dance Festival is a multi-day summer event, in parallel with the Nanaimo Dragonboat Festival, reaching an audience of over 10,000 spectators visiting from all across the world. The event features free outdoor cultural performances, events & workshops in Maffeo Sutton Park, as well as ticketed indoor shows at The Port Theatre.

Body Talk Workshop

This program, led by Indigenous facilitators, seeks to engage Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth in exploring career options in the performing arts by producing a real vs hypothetical community workshop and show during spring break and to do so as a team and through a cultural lens.
