Dance Basel is back!!!By Armando, on 22/03/2023

Dear valued Dance Basel supporter,

I hope this message finds you well. As a treasured supporter of the Dance Basel Festival in the past, we are excited to share some updates on this year’s event and explore the possibility of your continued support.

The Dance Basel Festival, organized by Braswell Arts Association, has grown into a premier event in the world of dance, showcasing the exceptional talents of emerging artists. This year, the festival is completely free and open to the public and will take place on June 10th and 11th and promises to be an even more captivating experience for all attendees.

The 2023 edition of Dance Basel will feature an extraordinary lineup of performances and workshops designed to engage, inspire, and connect artists and audiences from across the globe. Our goal remains the same: to create a platform that fosters artistic exchange, collaboration, and diversity in the field of dance.

Since the show is free to the public, by supporting our festival, you will help us cover the costs of travel expenses, accommodation, meals, and costumes, while also receiving some amazing incentives, such as recognition in our festival program and on our website. Donations of CHF 1000 and higher also give you VIP seats at festival performances, festival-branded merchandise, and an invitation to a behind-the-scenes rehearsal. Most importantly, you will be making a difference in the lives of young artists who are working hard to share their passion with the world.

We would be deeply honored if you would consider supporting the Dance Basel Festival once again this year. Your generous contributions have made a significant impact on the success of our previous event, and we believe your continued support will be instrumental in making the 2023 festival an unforgettable experience for everyone involved. Your donation goes 100% to covering the practical costs of the dance festival.
