Give a Gift
For the last four years, Ballet 5:8 has invested in communities through the beautiful joy of dance - creating and producing new works employ artistic ingenuity, innovation and excellence to engage audiences in meaningful experiences and discussion. However, we can't continue our work with the funding from ticket sales alone.
Will you join us in our mission?

The Making Space Showcase is an exciting evening of dance featuring the work of new and emerging choreographers in an informal, interactive performance setting. Making Space, a choreographer's forum sponsored by Ballet 5:8, provides a unique, positive space where choreographers can create, experiment, see their work come to life on the stage, and engage in discussion with the audience. The Making Space Showcase, culminating the Making Space project, features a wide variety of dance-based works created by participating choreographers.
