What Does Your Sponsorship Provide?
The Charlotte Youth Ballet enjoys a rich tradition of enhancing the cultural life of the Charlotte community with the only youth-based performing ballet company in the region. For over a quarter of a century, the CYB has proudly produced professional-quality Nutcracker and storybook ballets that merges a principal cast of professional international dancersand local students of ballet.
Our productions are designed to be accessible and affordable to a diverse audience with a particular focus on families in an effort to expand the reach of this centuries old art form and to foster a lifelong appreciation for ballet.
Corporate funding sustains a variety of CYB outreach programs, including the following:
- Underwriting performance tickets and transportation for at-risk school children (our Send One Student program offers the opportunity of direct underwriting)
- Underwriting free after-school ballet classes for at-risk children in the community (our Lasting Impressions program offers the opportunity of direct underwriting)
- Scholarships for dancer participation
- Special events for Girl Scouts
- Performances at community festivals, such as Festival in the Park
- Offset costs (artistic, technical, administrative, etc.) of staging professional quality productions, allowing the CYB to keep ticket costs and company dancers fees to a minimum
