With Your Support We Will Secure Ballet West’s Rightful Place as an Arts Leader

Inspire and expand our audience

Through greater development of our I CAN DO (Inspiring Children Not to Drop Out) program and the Ballet West for Children performance series, we will be able to reach a larger and more diverse group of students and educators, creating the next generation of arts patrons.

Deepen and broaden our base of financial support.

Ballet West has successfully managed the fiscal challenges of previous years and now we need to move forward. Now is the right time for planned growth. Ballet West must ask its ardent supporters to deepen their financial investment and inspire new partners to join us in our endeavor. With even greater community involvement we will build a financial foundation capable of supporting activities that are in keeping with the stature, artistic vision and mission of Ballet West. By joining us you will help to enrich the arts in Utah and assure Ballet West’s place in the cultural landscape of the United States.

Each year Ballet West hosts several events designed to highlight the needs of the company and give businesses, organizations, and individuals an opportunity to get involved in a very real way. By sponsoring, donating, or simply attending any of these events you are helping Ballet West achieve its goals. Please contact Camellia Rowland at crowland@balletwest.org to get involved in any of the following events:

Annual Gala

Build a new home for Ballet West Company and Academy.

It is vital that we build a facility to adequately house our artists and staff. Right now we are operating Utah’s only major ballet company in less than optimum conditions.  Our company of 40 artists (and second company of 10) rehearses in only two studios.  Studio space becomes even more challenging when we factor in the academy which currently divides its time between the opera studios, the University of Utah studios and our limited studio space at the Capitol Theatre.  Add to that our costume shop which is three miles away, our administrative staff which is working on top of each other, and a warehouse for nearly fifty years’ worth of sets and costumes which is currently up for sale.  One can see why a new permanent facility is imperative.  Re-launching our Capital Campaign and building our endowment is a significant task to take on in conjunction with the need to grow our annual operating goal; however, we feel it is necessary for the ultimate survival and success of Ballet West.

To achieve the legacy we all want for Ballet West, we need increased commitment from our strongest allies and new financial partners. Ballet West needs you!  With your help we can broaden our support base, grow and retain talent, present both classic and new programming, and showcase and export the best that Utah has to offer the world of dance.
