A BALLET EDUCATION
NEW AND IMPROVED!
We are very excite to announce that our foundation is officially a non-profit. During the 2020-2021 season, A Ballet Education was able to offer numerous scholarships to students at The Ballet Clinic and has been able to help out numerous students with pointe shoes, expenses and tuition. We were also able to giveaway tons of products including planners, stickers, shirts, and backpacks. Through the foundation we have been able to partner with Grishko’s NG Generation and Youth America Grand Prix to donate products to their organization’s participants. The 2020-2021 fiscal season, we were able to give away over $100,000 dollars! So, so thank you for supporting A Ballet Education, as it gives back to the dance community.
