FRIENDS of Ballet Palm Beach is a hospitality and volunteer organization, a group of ballet enthusiasts whose support is vital to the on-going operation of Ballet Palm Beach.
FRIENDS help the Ballet by:
• Assisting at The Nutcracker and other ballet performances and events
• Assisting at fund-raisers, donor recognitions, BPB Academy programs and various special events
• Staffing the Ballet Boutique at performances
• Providing cost-saving clerical support to ballet departments
• Assisting with public relations and outreach activities
