This event is a non profit 501(c)(3) Korean pop dance showcase that will be held on November 14th in Lakewood, Colorado. The purpose of this showcase is let people who enjoy Korean pop music or formally known as Kpop come together and celebrate our love by showcasing some of the Kpop choreography. Prime example would be BTS, the Korean boy group that won the Top Social Artist award at the Billboard Awards this past year. The non profit 501(c)(3) Organization working this showcase is called Aurora Sister Cities International. The purpose of this organizatiom is to set up sister cities in different countries by connnecting with the government and businesses. They are also helping the youth of Colorado and the youth of the sister cities get extra educational opportunities. Aurora Sister Cities is currently working with Seongnam, South Korea to become a sister city. We are doing this showcase as a way to help connect with South Korea and show our apperciation for their culture.
Why should you sponsor?
There are three reasons. One is to help the youth of Colorado ranging from 14-25 express their love and apperciation for the Korean Culture by dancing Korean Pop songs or formerly known as Kpop. We are always seen as different for liking Kpop even though we are american. Its just so different from the norm that some people have a hard time grasping why we like it so much. We wanted to show people just how fun Kpop can be and make them understand what it means to us. Reason number two is there is a non-profit organization in Colorado called Aurora Sister Cities International that is currently in the process of setting up a sister city for City of Aurora in South Korea, The chosen city is Seongnam, South Korea and they are looking for Buisness and Educational opportunities with the City of Aurora. We were going to use this showcase as a way to show that we apperciate that Seongnam wants to be a sister city with us. The third reason is to get Colorado's name out there for future Kpop events. A lot of Kpop singers go on tour in America and the turnout is always great since people travel from all over the country to see them in whatever city they're having their concert in. We hope that with us connecting with Seongnam will bring more opportunities to having a Kpop singer visit Colorado. It would be a dream come true for us.
