Set the Stage Gala

In the past, our Dance with Me Gala has been a night to remember – one that brings our patrons together to support the mission of Ballet Arizona, the critically-acclaimed artistic product, The School, and all community engagement efforts. Unfortunately, the events of COVID prohibit us from holding this critical fundraising event in-person. Today, we humbly ask that, in lieu of supporting our traditional gala, you continue to support Ballet Arizona through our Set the Stage reinvented gala. Set the Stage sponsors and donors will be able to continue their support of the ballet’s mission while simultaneously making the spring  digital performance free to our entire community.  Neither cost, nor geography will limit access to this inspiring art.

With your help, Ballet Arizona can look toward the future with confidence and prepare for the time when we will emerge from this pandemic to resume more traditional performances. In a year that has taken so much, you can give our larger community free access to Ballet Arizona’s May digital performance, and directly impact the lives of children, veterans and others through engagement programs such as Angel Night and DanceAZ.

Benefits will be provided to sponsors and donors who contribute to Set the Stage. For more information, please see our Corporate and Individual Sponsor Benefits page. Your financial support will complement the funding bridge made possible by Jacquie and Bennett Dorrance and other generous supporters to date.

Thank you, in advance, for considering this special request for support for Ballet Arizona and the critical performances and programs enabled through financial support during these most critical times.
