Join the Family
Ballet 5:8 is a 501-(c)-3 nonprofit organization. Though our financial needs are partially supported by earned income, such as ticket sales and tuition dollars, we rely on the additional support of a generous team of individual donors, business partners, nonprofit partners, performance sponsors, and public and private grants to cover up to 30% of our operating budget. These are individuals and organizations who believe in Ballet 5:8's mission and make our work - things like creating brand-new ballets, participating in free-to-the-public performances, and making financial aid scholarships available to students in our school - possible through their ongoing support. We like to call them the Ballet 5:8 Family.
For the last two years, #GivingTuesday has challenged individuals and communities to make the world a better place through generosity.
For the last four years, Ballet 5:8 has invested in communities through the simple joy of dance.
We regularly participate in free-to-the-public performances. We always keep our prices for ticketed performances under $30. We travel and perform in the biggest cities and the smallest towns, often bringing dance to places where no dance has gone before. We are passionate about creating and producing relevant, beautiful, communicative dance that can inspire meaningful discussion among audience members, no prior experience in dance required.
We are constantly about the work of enriching lives, communities and our world through the simple joy of dance.
What will you do this #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a special call to action to create a global day of giving that brings diverse organizations and communities around the world together to give back. You don’t have to be a world leader or a billionaire to give back. #GivingTuesday is about ordinary people coming together doing extraordinary things.
We are looking for 30 new Friends of Ballet 5:8 to make a contribution of $60 or more before the end of 2015.
Your gift = helping us to #sharejoy
Join us with a pledge of as little as $5 a month.
