Ballet is an international language with the ability to tell stories, evoke feelings and inspire audiences of all ages. For nearly 40 years, Ballet Arkansas has performed on stages and at schools across the state of Arkansas to the delight and amazement of those who get to watch our elite athletes and talented dancers! Without the support of individuals like you, this would not be possible.
Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors and donors last year, Ballet Arkansas ticket sales reached record levels and we are now in the midst of kicking off our best season ever! As a result, we opened the season to rave reviews for our 3rd annual choreographic competition, VISIONS, and we will be bringing another Balanchine work to Arkansas, along with tours to Northwest Arkansas, Hot Springs and a collaboration with Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville.
Soon we’ll be moving to our amazing new space on Main Street in Little Rock’s booming Creative Corridor. Our new location enables us to have a dedicated studio space as well as offering downtown pedestrian traffic an opportunity to see the Ballet Arkansas company at work as they prepare and rehearse for our exciting new performances. Imagine being able to spend your lunch hour with Ballet Arkansas’ company artists. You will be truly inspired! Your donation helps us to keep our new facility updated with the equipment and technology to help our dancers be at their best!
Ballet Arkansas is proud to announce eleven returning company dancers, a new male company dancer, and an apprentice from the Fayetteville area. We encourage you to read their bios. These dancers make up the largest company in our history and allow us to bring more diverse offerings to you, our audience.
Your gift makes it possible for us to support these dancers, keep them in new costumes and pointe shoes, and continue to create the programming that enriches you – our audience – while also helping our company dancers improve and grow as artists. You can make a one-time or reoccurring donation.
The Nutcracker will return to the newly renovated Robinson Center this year, where we collaborate with over 200 community cast artists and the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra to bring you this holiday favorite. Our performance calendar grows again this year, because donors just like you have answered generously when asked to support Ballet Arkansas. Learn more about the entire season’s offerings and come see us perform throughout the state!
A gift of any amount will help us bring the art of ballet to our communities in Arkansas and your gift of any amount is always tax deductible.
But even more important than that—it will bring excitement, beauty and joy to thousands of audience members as they enjoy Ballet Arkansas. Join us this season!
