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 and business donors, 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.

#BuildingScarlet

THANK YOU | Total of $9,920 raised to date!

Storytelling is one of the world’s oldest and most beautiful forms of dialogue, connecting people of every race, gender, religion and way of life. Scarlet - a story of pride, judgment, hypocrisy and redemption - matters, particularly in today's divided and antagonistic time. Your support can make our ability to tell this important story through film and dance.
