Be an AIR Sponsor!
DSH invites you to create a personal connection with our Artists in Residence (AIR) and the Houston dance community by sponsoring an AIR for the 2017 season. DSH programs and performances are conversations between dancers and audiences. AIR sponsorship deepens the conversation and builds personal connections between the dance artists and sponsors.

What is an AIR Sponsor?
AIR sponsorship is offered to donors who want to directly support our Artist in Residence Program. Each year through the AIR program, DSH provides selected artists with focused tools, rehearsal space, professional development, and performance opportunities to encourage and enable them to push themselves and their art to new levels by taking risks and maximizing their time in the residency. The residency culminates with performances of the work created as part of the Barnstorm Dance Fest. AIR sponsorships serve the essential purpose of providing support for DSH, its operating budget, AIR creative, rehearsal and production expenses, outreach and educational programs. In addition, AIR sponsorship is an opportunity to get to know these dance artists and their work.
AIR Sponsors will have opportunities to interact with DSH Artists in Residence and see the creative process firsthand. These opportunities include invitations to special events, rehearsals, backstage tours, and more, where sponsors and AIRs meet, mix, and experience the creative process in action. AIR sponsors are recognized in DSH marketing materials, in the Barnstorm Dance Fest program, and on the DSH website. AIR sponsorship not only supports DSH, but also helps transform each event into a meeting among friends. And it helps DSH advance its mission to “nurture and support contemporary dance artists, the organizations that present them, and to identify and build audiences for contemporary dance in the greater Houston area.”
How Do I Become an AIR Sponsor?
There are two ways to become an AIR sponsor: as the sponsor of a residency, or as a sponsor of the AIR program overall.
AIR Residency Sponsor
A donor may support the cost of an entire residency with a donation of $1000 for the year. The Residency Sponsor name will be listed in all DSH materials, and highlighted in the Barnstorm Dance Festival program and on the DSH website. Alternately, a group of individuals may jointly sponsor a residency. In this case, the group name will be recognized as the Residency Sponsor and individuals as program sponsors.
AIR Program Sponsorship
For a donation of $250 or more, anyone may sponsor the AIR program overall. AIR sponsors will be recognized in DSH materials, in the Barnstorm program and on the DSH website.
