Dear Tango Rojo Guests and Sponsors,

On behalf of the board, staff, and dancers of Ballet Arkansas, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you who attended our Turning Pointe Gala. It was an incredible sight to see our community come together to support our mission and the arts in Little Rock, especially in the aftermath of destruction to our beloved city.

Ballet is more than just a beautiful art form. It is a universal language that transcends cultural boundaries and connects people from all walks of life. Your support ensures that Ballet Arkansas will continue to uplift, enrich, and inspire tens of thousands of Arkansans each year. We are honored to be YOUR ballet company and we look forward to all that lies ahead for our organization. Thank you!

Of course, Tango Rojo would not have been possible without the generous support of our Event Sponsors, Table Sponsors, Auction Sponsors and Partners. Their belief in our people and programming is vital to our success, and we are eternally grateful.

Although the gala has come and gone, don't forget the many opportunities over the next few weeks you'll have to meaningfully engage with our organization. Performances in partnership with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts, and the Argenta Plaza are just around the corner. I hope you'll join us and experience the important work we do in the community firsthand - all thanks to your support! 

Thank you again for your unwavering support of Ballet Arkansas. We are proud to serve you and hope you had an incredible time at Tango Rojo.

With gratitude,

Michael Fothergill

Executive and Artistic Director, Ballet Arkansas
