Become one of our supporters!
Texas Dance needs your help! Each spring, team members go out into the Austin community in search of businesses to support us. Although we do receive university funding, we need help getting enough money to travel to our Nationals competition and putting on a Spring Show. Monetary donations are what we primarily look for, but if your business would like to help us out in a different way we would love to hear your ideas! If you aren't a business owner and want to help us out, we would love your support as well. We need all the help we can get!
Why do we need so much money?
This year we are attending a National competition for the second
time in both UT and our team history. We have a talented group of girls that individually have won an array of regional and national titles, who are capable of receiving the same honors as a team so long we we can afford to send them to do so. The cost of attending a National Competition is around $1,000 per girl! Entry fees and hotel total around $400/each, airfare from Austin is around $400 as well, and costumes and last minute miscellaneous expenses must be accounted for as well. For our Spring Show, the event can cost the team an additional $3,000! We also have to purchase publicity materials for Show and other events to spread the word about our team. In addition, we like to be able to host at least one philanthropic activity a year so that we can give back to the Austin community for supporting us in our endeavors, and such an event is not possible unless we have raised the necessary funds!
How can you help?
Become one of our supporters! By making a tax-deductible donation to our team, you are supporting a group of self-run UT students who are actively involved in the University and around Austin. All Texas Dance publicity materials will bear your name as a sponsor and we will link your business on the website. If you wish to donate as a family member or friend of the team, you certainly may do so as well.
