Matching Gift Doubles Your Donation


DONATE 

Update 7/19/2018: Thank you, donors.
We reached our goal for the match!
Thank you for continued donations until July 31. 

 

A donation made until July 31, 2018 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $5000. Your donation, no matter the size, will have double the impact because of the generosity of two long-time fans and supporters of Ethnic Dance Theatre. Their enthusiasm and support for EDT is reflected in their message:

We are two long-time folk dancers who have been enjoying EDT performances as enthusiastic audience members since early in the group’s history and believe in its mission. We appreciate the artistry and dedication of its leadership, dancers, musicians and costume-makers. We have been amazed by the breathtaking energy of their performances, fascinated by the different music and dance styles they present, and dazzled by their stunning costumes.

The Twin Cities has many fine dance groups dedicated to preserving the folk cultures of individual nations, but EDT is unique in showcasing the dance and music of many cultures, taking audiences on an international adventure that crosses many borders. By exploring the diversity of ethnic dance, EDT develops interest in other cultures, fosters a sense of international connectedness, and creates appreciation of the richness and variety of our immigrant heritage and local ethnic communities. Its performances are joyous and fun, but they also open eyes, ears and minds. EDT plays an important role in keeping traditional dance and music alive, and we want to support its continued ability to bring them to new audiences. The local artistic community would be poorer without this vibrant cultural asset.

EDT is a non-profit corporation (501c-3) and your donation is tax-deductible.
