Fundraising gets personal.

Get acquainted with the most integral part of the company– the dancers!

The “Sponsor A Dancer” initiative is an accessible fundraising campaign that allows our patrons to directly support the individual artists of Charlottesville Ballet. By sponsoring a dancer, you will directly support your artist’s salary, shoes, costumes, and wellness programs throughout the season.
