Dancers for Dancers (D4D)
We are excited to launch the second annual Dancers for Dancers program (D4D)! As a nonprofit organization, Charlottesville Ballet is 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 with over $84,000 in scholarships and financial aid.
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. Similar to programs such as Jump Rope for the Heart, D4D fosters a community where students help raise the funds that contribute towards their peers’ scholarships.
If you are a parent, please allow us a small suggestion. Consider allowing your child to ask for these donations on his or her own. You can assist in coming up with wording, for example:
“I am raising money for dancers who need scholarships for their dance classes at CBA. Would you please support me? Any amount helps, even $1.”
Even if you help your child remember what to say, he or she will still be able to take great pride in any funds raised for the D4D program.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by emailing [email protected] Thank you in advance for your support in this initiative!
And if you’re into social media — you can copy our wording and share our Facebook post!
