Ballet 5:8 School of the Arts is part of Ballet 5:8, is a 501-(c)-3 nonprofit organization.
Each year, we make high quality dance education accessible to over 150 students (granting about $20,000 in scholarships to students in need) and produce high quality dance performances that we use to share the beauty of the arts and meaningful stories with our communities. However, because we value accessibility and work to keep our prices low, the earned income we receive through ticket sales, student tuition and other sources only covers a portion of our modest annual operating expenses. This is despite the fact that our directors and staff choose to accept compensation well below industry standards in favor of supporting our mission. All together, we will need to raise at least 20% of our operating budget through donor funding and other contributed support.
YOU can be part of the special group of supporters who make all this possible. We call it our Ballet 5:8 Family.
