10-10-10 Pay it Forward Scholarship Fundraiser

Our 10-10-10 Scholarship Fundraiser is now underway! All we're asking is for you to make a $10 donation, and get 10 of your friends to make a donation of $10 and keep the chain going. All of your generous donations to this campaign go directly to our scholarship program. We believe that every child deserves a chance to dance so we are asking students, families, alumni, supporters of the arts and friends of the ballet to donate $10 to our Scholarship Fund. Our goal is to raise $15,000 by May 1st which isn't too far away! So what are you waiting for?
