Ballet Austin Education

Ballet Austin Education

Ballet Austin acknowledges the arts and arts education as essential elements in the educational process necessary for the intellectual and social development of all humans. Ballet Austin is committed to offering educators resources and opportunities to provide young people with arts experiences, specifically dance.

Research demonstrates that students benefit socially and academically from sustained involvement in the arts. Students in arts-rich environments have higher concepts of their academic ability, are achieving at higher rates on standardized test scores and are more engaged in schools.

Night of Community

Program description

Underwritten by the Georgia B. Lucas Foundation Fund of the Austin Community Foundation and Wells Fargo

Through the support of our underwriters and sponsors, Ballet Austin welcomes central Texas non-profit social service organizations and their clients to join us for our final dress rehearsal of each production. This season, we will invite 5,000 guests to attend these dress rehearsals at no charge. The goal of this program is to offer financially-challenged community members an opportunity to attend a live ballet performance for free.

Ballet Austin’s Night of Community illustrates how non-profit agencies, the business community, and the arts can partner to benefit the entire Austin community. If your organization is a social-service 501(c)(3) non-profit serving those that are financially challenged in the Austin and immediately surrounding areas, your group may be eligible for free tickets.

To apply for this program, please email the following to Community Education Director, Pei-San Brown:

  • A copy of your organization’s 501(c)(3) tax determination letter from the IRS. Scanned copies are acceptable.
  • A letter of request from your executive director describing the population that would be served by this program, as well as the benefits they will receive from participating in this program. The letter from your executive director must be printed on organizational letterhead and signed, and can be mailed or scanned and e-mailed.
