Dancers for Dancers (D4D)


We are excited to announce the results of our third annual Dancers for Dancers program (D4D)! As a nonprofit organization, Charlottesville Ballet is committed to making dance accessible to everyone in our community and gives over $104,000 in scholarships and financial aid each year.

For the 2018 D4D program and in honor of Charlottesville Ballet’s 10th anniversary season, dancers at Charlottesville Ballet Academy were challenged to raise just $10 in three weeks.  They raised over $12,000 and we could not be more proud of their philanthropic efforts in proving access to dance education for ALL in our community!

About D4D – How It Works:

In 2015, Charlottesville Ballet launched the Dancers for Dancers (D4D) initiative with a goal to expand CB’s scholarship and financial aid programs while raising awareness of access & philanthropy for the young dancers themselves.  D4D fosters a community where students help raise the funds that contribute towards their peers’ scholarships.

 

 

ABOUT DANCERS FOR DANCERS (D4D):
Charlottesville Ballet is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization committed to making dance accessible to everyone in our community. Each year, Charlottesville Ballet Academy ( CBA ) provides scholarships and financial aid to as many in-need students as possible. During the 2017-2018 season, CB provided over  $225,000 in scholarships and financial aid.

In 2015, Charlottesville Ballet launched the Dancers For Dancers (D4D) initiative with the help of co-chairs Sally McDowell and Cherish Alberts. The goal: to expand CB’s scholarship and financial aid programs while raising awareness of access & philanthropy for the young dancers themselves. D4D fosters a community where students help raise the funds that will contribute towards their peers’ scholarships.
When the program launched in 2015 as part of our “Building the Future” campaign, CBA students raised over $7,500. In the last two years, CBA students raised $7,700 (2016-17) and $12,000 (2017-18). This year, our goal is to raise $12,000 for scholarships in less than weeks! We are delighted to have Carpe Donut as our D4D sponsor, who will be donating “Donut Parties” for any CBA class with 100% participation in the program.
