YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
On May 3rd, 2016, from midnight – midnight, Ballet Palm Beach (BPB) is participating in the Great Give, an online giving event led by the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties, United Way of Palm Beach County and United Way of Martin County. Supporting local arts is important and your donation enables Ballet Palm Beach to continue to provide our community with beautiful main stage ballets, education for young dancers through our scholarship fund, employment for local professional dancers, and community outreach that brings ballet to the young and elderly who can not make it to the theatre.
Next season, the Balanchine Trust has granted the rights for Ballet Palm Beach to perform the Tchaikovsky Pas De Deux. It is a privilege to be awarded this honor, as only companies of a high caliber are allowed to perform George Balanchine’s works. The season will open with Balanchine choreography as well as a new ballet, Snow White. In addition, BPB will perform community favorite The Nutcracker and romantic ballet Romeo & Juliet underscored by Prokofiev. Our commitment to community outreach will be stronger than ever as we perform Peter and the Wolf with live music from the Palm Beach Symphony. More details will be announced in the coming weeks.
Gifts made through the Great Give will receive a portion of bonus funds – making your dollar go even further than it would on any other day. Go to Ballet Palm Beach’s Great Give webpage and make an online donation on May 3, 2016, from midnight to midnight. Remember YOU can make a difference!
