Ballet Austin provides over 10,000 performance tickets to the clients of over 500 area non-profit organizations?
“Most of the families staying in our homeless shelter are struggling to get their basic needs met. For some of our clients, these community nights were their first exposure to professional dance productions. Thank you for thinking of our residents and making the arts accessible to all members of our community.”
-Dawn Bayardo, Child and Family Therapist, The Salvation Army
Ticket sales cover only 50% of the cost to bring a work to the stage?
“We began modestly with a $25 donation. With a matching gift, that donation became $50 (which we joked would probably pay for one pointe shoe!) Still, we knew that shoe was important and that the gift made a difference.”
- Sean Henry, Ballet Austin Donor
