Giving Opportunities 2011

It is with pride that Batsheva Dance Company has announced the official launch of the Australian Friends of Batsheva Dance Company together with AICE. We have fantastic initiatives underway, but we need your support in order to promote an environment for artistic creation. This will ensure the continued excellence of Batsheva’s productions and allow us to tour Australia, spur the growth of our company’s global audience and expand Batsheva’s innovative educational programs.

We welcome you to the Australian Friends of the Batsheva Dance Company and look forward to your involvement in this year’s events.
