Since 2005, Les Étés de la Danse developed very strong ties with the dance world

in the USA and accross the world.

In recognition of the festival’s close ties to the American dance community,

the American Friends of Les Etés de la Danse (AFLED), a U.S. based tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization,

was established in 2012 to support the festival’s presentation of American companies and artists

with funding provided by individuals, foundations, corporations and special events.
