WAYS TO GIVE
WHEN YOU SHOP
Opportunities to partner with and sponsor performances, streaming productions, education and outreach programs and community events.
For 27 years the Roxey Ballet Company has served the region with high-quality, innovative dance performances and educational programs, guided by our vision to use dance to build bridges in the community. Our repertory performance season kicks off in October and runs through June with sold-out productions of Dracula, Carmen, Frida, The C-Word: Stories of Triumph Over Breast Cancer and our annual holiday classic The Nutcracker.
Productions are just one side of Roxey Ballet. Our mission of “Building Bridges Through Dance” we have been doing since our inception. We are proud to be recognized among the few dance organizations in America that actively seek to make the arts accessible to all, including those with disabilities.
Please help Roxey Ballet do more in the community by making a tax-deductible donation. As a not-for-profit organization, we put every cent raised back into our activities. Your donations, along with income generated through performances and from funders, keep our programs vibrant and relevant. Your donation today will help:
-To support educational programs in schools like "Celebrating Diversity”, an anti-bullying program, "Wheels & Bodies in Motion" program that allows children of all ages and capabilities to express themselves freely in a healthy, supportive environment, and "Dance to Learn" providing education of the elements of dance through improvisation.
-To create high-quality productions like The Nutcracker that entertain thousands, mixing international professional dancers with hundreds of area children in an amazing learning experience and thrilling performances. To ensure the beauty of our productions are accessible to all, we offer Sensory-Friendly performances for children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder or other sensitivity issues or special needs.
• To underwrite new works of dance and educational programs with local and national dance artists and choreographers.
• To use the arts to heal and inspire, through productions such as our recent premier of The C- Word: Stories of Triumph Over Breast Cancer, which celebrates the lives of breast cancer survivors in partnership with The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, D&R Greenway, Grounds for Sculpture, and the Breast Cancer Resource Center.
• To attract a diversity of professional dancers to perform locally, introducing area residents to such talent without having to travel to the city.
When you make a tax-deductible donation to Roxey Ballet you simultaneously support our ongoing educational programs and area students who benefit deeply from the vital presence of art in their lives, a presence that is often the first to go with state budget mandates.
On behalf of Mark and Melissa Roxey, the artists, staff, Board of Trustees, and the hundreds of local area students, we thank you for your generosity and continued support of our unique programs.
President, Roxey Ballet Board of Trustees
