Want your contribution to go to a dedicated fund? You can contribute to one of our permanent funds, listed below. Donations to these funds are appropriately credited as a Friend of the Ballet. To sponsor the Annual Turning Pointe Gala, please e-mail info@balletarkansas.org.

Traci Presley - Tackett Tutu Fund 

Created in 2017 in dedication to longtime Ballet Arkansas costumer, Traci Presley - Tackett, this fund helps keep our Ballerinas looking beautiful on stage.  Each tutu in our costume inventory is valued between $300 -$1200, and has a life span of approximately 5-7 years. Your support helps us to keep our costume inventory updated, and allows for the creation of stunning costumes for use in Ballet Arkansas performances. A percentage of our yearly earnings from this fund are donated to CARTI Cancer Institute in Traci's honor.

Ballet Arkansas Pointe Shoe Fund

Pointe shoes are a vital piece of equipment for our Ballerinas. Our female company members each use approximately 25 pairs of pointe shoes per season, averaging around $100 per pair. These pointe shoes have a short life expectancy, some dying within the first day of use. Your support helps us keep our dancers on their toes. Receive a signed pair of pointe shoes from your favorite dancer with your donation!  


Sponsor a Dancer

$1,500 per year

By sponsoring a dancer, your contribution directly impacts the dancer of your choosing. Your contribution supports the artist's yearly expenses, and enables them to shine on stage. Being a dancer sponsor comes with extra benefits, including invites to company mixers, credit alongside their name in all playbills and select marketing materials, and much more. Dancers are selected on a first come first served basis, and only one sponsor per dancer is allowed. You may renew sponsorship for your dancer on July 1st for consecutive seasons.

Ticket sales account for only a portion of our annual budget. It is the contributions of all shapes and sizes from individuals and organizations that believe in the vision of Ballet Arkansas, that keeps the lights on. As a nonprofit, we are susceptible to changes in local, state, and federal funding, and this is why your donation means so much.
