Support Classical Ballet in Hampton Roads

The continued success of Ballet Virginia International is greatly due to the generosity of our many contributors. Each year BVI has targeted fundraising campaigns for specific needs such as new sets for a ballet or new flooring for the studios. Several fundraising events are also held to create community, strengthen our local arts community, have fun and raise much needed funds. BVI takes very seriously its’ mission to offer excellent dance training within the reach of most families. In order to provide this we must seek funding beyond tuition and ticket sales for the following:

» Operations

The most valuable funds are always those unrestricted gifts that enable us to supplement our marketing, instructional,  and administrative budgets to include professional development for faculty and staff.

» Performance

In order to provide our students with the essential experience of being on stage, we present at least three public performances each season. To ensure that these events meet standards of professional quality, we seek sponsorships, program advertisements, and other gifts to help with the guest artists fees, cost of scenery, costumes, and production fees.

» Endowment

This fund will provide long term financial strength that will enable BVI to continue through the inevitable downturns of the business cycle. You can help us achieve this stability by designating a gift for our Endowment.

BVI is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Contributions are tax deductible.
