why we need your support...
The future of our art form depends greatly on the education our students receive.
As Artistic Director of Ellison Ballet, I am deeply committed to the further development of a rich educational environment, one which: provides our talented students with superior classical training; encourages the development of each student’s individual creative voice; and finally, empowers them with the tools to flourish in the professional world of ballet.
I am pleased to say that word has quickly spread about Ellison Ballet as a force in ballet education. Aspiring dancers from all over the United States and beyond are competing for a spot in our Professional Training Program and Summer Intensive.
As student tuition only covers a part of our annual operating expenses, our continued commitment to excellence is made possible by the generous support of individual contributions to our annual giving fund, foundation and government grants, and corporate sponsorship.
I am grateful to those who have already generously contributed, and I encourage you to support Ellison Ballet in one of the variety of ways available to you.
