Thank You for Being Our Bridge

You did it! Thank you for helping Ballet Arizona build a bridge to the future. Alongside Jacquie and Bennett Dorrance, longtime arts and culture philanthropists, our community came together and raised more than $1.2 million in recovery and resiliency funding to provide Ballet Arizona a financial bridge to the other side of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This past year has been filled with uncertainty for us all, but it has also been a reminder of how powerful we are together.

Your support and passion for the performing arts allowed Ballet Arizona to keep our dancers, faculty, and staff employed. You brought four new works to the stage, including our sold-out performances of The Four Seasons at Desert Botanical Garden! You kept the dreams of students at The School of Ballet Arizona alive and celebrated their inaugural partnership with the Phoenix Youth Symphony Orchestras.

Our journey, however, is far from over. Arts organizations, like Ballet Arizona, are still in need of vital support. Click here for more information and to see how you can get involved.
