There's a level of support to fit everyone's individual needs, all the while keeping this nationally acclaimed company on the forefront of training, touring and production.
Pointe Shoe Fund
Each season, our dancers wear through more than 400 pairs of shoes between rehearsals and performances. Pointe Shoes are made to each dancer’s unique specifications and often they only last for a week or two. Will you help keep our dancers on their toes all season long?
Community Engagement Fund
Ballet Memphis community engagement and education programs have been providing unique opportunities and experiences for local Memphis area students that spark interest in performing arts and help to stimulate creativity. Throughout the season you can find Ballet Memphis all around the community though engaging children at local schools and community centers, hosting educational events like SPARK!, and more. Ballet Memphis’s Community Engagement programs provide a range of free activities that occur during the school day, afterschool, and at the theater.
The Dancer Fund helps to underwrite the dancer’s salaries and helps provides our dancer’s with much needed financial resources when they decide to transition out of dance into different careers or life stages. By donating to the Ballet Memphis Dancer Fund, you are providing a much needed service to our dancers at a crucial time in their career.
Do you enjoy our productions every season? If so, donate to the Production Fund! From the beautiful scenery to the costumes worn, none of it would be possible without support from our generous patrons.
Ballet Memphis School Scholarship Fund
In addition to our Company that performs on stages across Memphis, Ballet Memphis also has a school. We provide financial aid to many of our students that cover anywhere from 50-100% of tuition and the scholarships are either need-based or merit-based.
Junior Company Fund
he Ballet Memphis Junior Company is our non-professional Company which is composed of upper-level school students. The Junior Company provides students the opportunity to perform on stage either in Junior Company productions like Match Girl or on the mainstage in Nutcracker. Students are given the chance to pursue dance in a pre-professional way before graduating high-school.
