HOW TO GIVE

Support Festival Ballet Theatre

Festival Ballet Theatre is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dance company. Our mission is to enrich Orange County’s artistic and economic vitality, to inspire love and appreciation for dance, and to invigorate ballet by:

  • Presenting a season of exhilarating classical and contemporary performances,
  • Providing a nurturing environment for dancers and choreographers,
  • Offering stimulating educational outreach programs.

Ticket sales alone do not support the organization’s financial stability. It is through the generous contributions of individuals, local businesses, foundations and corporate sponsors that Festival Ballet Theatre is able to be an active artistic force in the community.

Special giving opportunities provide long-lasting and meaningful relationships with Festival Ballet. Organizations and individuals wanting to support a specific need can dedicate their gift to a person, or in memorial.

Please join us in bringing high-quality dance to Orange County and help us broaden our cultural and artistic impact by supporting Festival Ballet Theatre.
