Benefit Gala Annual Campaign Goal: $60,000

This fall, we are relying on your support to raise the $60,000 in needed contributions for our fiscal year that begins in September. Donated funds make it possible for us to create costumes by hand, provide artists of the company with pointe shoe stipends that cover part of their needed shoes for the season (they personally pay for the rest out of their limited artist pay), travel to performances in cities across the nation, and keep tuition prices low in our dance education programs while also providing financial aid scholarships to those in particular need.

Join the Family

Ballet 5:8 is proud to be a 501-(c)-3 nonprofit organization supported by a generous team of individuals, businesses, nonprofit partners, and other sponsors.

As one of the only Christian professional ballet companies in the U.S. and the world, Ballet 5:8 has become a forerunner in the unique but vital work of creating and engaging with culture from the basis of our faith. As a 501-(c)-3 nonprofit organization, Ballet 5:8 relies on financial contributions to pay for production, staff and operational costs not covered by ticket sales and tuition. Join us this season so that together, we can continue to inspire and equip young artists, strengthen communities through access to the arts, and engage audiences in storytelling and meaningful discussion through breathtaking dance.
