Revenue earned through the sale of tickets accounts for approximately 55% of our gross operating budget. Without the generous support from individuals and organizations across the state, we could not continue to operate. This would mean that tens of thousands of Arkansans from all areas of the state would be deprived of performances and education programs that enrich their lives, and the cultural ecosystem of the region would suffer significant setbacks.

Over the course of the last 41 years, Ballet Arkansas has grown to become one of the most dynamic presenters of professional dance programming in the region. In that time, more than 200,000 Arkansans have been touched by our performances and education programs, roughly the population of the state's capital city.

 

This year alone, Ballet Arkansas provided performance opportunities to more than 400 children and adults, performing for nearly 20,000 over the course of the season. Our beloved student matinee performances reached nearly 8000 students, and our outreach performances and broadcasts reached another 5000 in over 30 countries and in all 50 states and US territories.  Your investment in Ballet Arkansas goes a long way.

  • Although nonprofits like us apply for grants, few organizations can survive on grant funding alone. In fact, the pool of funding tends to fluctuate year to year, making it difficult to predict future grant awards.

  • Funding we receive is applied directly towards costs associated with programming, education, outreach, and infrastructure. When these programs profit, we are able to save. Funding is rarely applied directly to savings. In other words, funds received from donations make a direct impact on our community by way of our many programs.

  • World events have a significant impact on our operations. During times of uncertainty, we need your support the most.
