Shoreline Ballet has signed on a major sponsor of the 2021 festival. It’s the second season in which the Guilford dance school has supported and partnered with the festival. In addition to making a substantial donation to help fund this year’s events, Shoreline Ballet will host a number of free dance workshops led by festival performers at its studio. As if that’s not enough, SB’s director, Kathryn “Katie” Contessa, a member of GPAF’s board, is producing this year’s festival. We owe much of this year’s festival to her support, tireless work, experience and creativity.
