As a supporter of Ballet 5:8 it has been a journey for me to watch the artists and the company grow over the past (six) years. They are continually trying new things to bring innovative storytelling and breathtaking dance in front of audiences all around the United States. I continue to support Ballet 5:8’s journey into their seventh season!

As a parent my journey has been watching my dancer grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually at Ballet 5:8 School of the Arts. His/her instructor fosters an environment in the classroom that helps my child thrive. I am excited for my dancer to continue journeying at Ballet 5:8 School of the Arts this season!

As an instructor/staff in Ballet 5:8 School of the Arts I love to watch the journey of the hundreds of students that are training at Ballet 5:8. From the little dancers in toddler and me to our students in the Trainee program, it is a joy to see every dancer’s journey!

As a professional artist in the company it has been a journey for me artistically and spiritually throughout my time at Ballet 5:8. Every season we are stretched in new roles and have the ability to perform heartfelt and faith inspired stories on stage. I am excited to continue to journey with Ballet 5:8 this season!
