Corporate Sponsorship

Generous support for the 2023-24 season provided by:

Charlotte Youth Ballet offers a variety of sponsorship levels. Sponsorship packages and experiences are customizable based on the needs of the corporation. We also welcome in-kind donations.

Why Preserve the Legacy?

Charlotte Youth Ballet enjoys a rich tradition of enhancing the cultural life of the Charlotte community by being the only youth-based performing ballet company in the region. Since 1981, CYB has proudly produced professional-quality Nutcracker and storybook ballets that merge a principal cost of professional international dancers and local students of ballet.

Our productions are designed to be accessible and affordable to a diverse audience in an effort to expand the reach of this centuries-old art form and to foster a lifelong appreciation for ballet.

Your support will:

  • Offset our production costs (artistic, technical, administrative, theater costs, etc.). We have an outstanding relationship with professional dancers in Puerto Rico who are a part of the CYB family. Your support helps us pay for travel costs for these professionals. We also have to rent storage facilities for our costumes and sets and your support will help us offset these costs.
  • Being the longest running The Nutcracker in Charlotte means we often have old sets and costumes. CYB’s board works to help replace and improve costumes and sets for our audience and dancers with your support.

In addition, corporate funding sustains a variety of CYB outreach programs including the following:

  •  S.O.S- Send One Student! Send one student, but we hope you send more!  Help us fund our outreach program with CMS and Title One Schools.  CYB brings on average 500 students to see Nutcracker at not cost to the school.  This is our mission and our passion, please help us recover school show ticket costs and donate today to S.O.S.  Nutcracker school shows are $10 and Spring Show School tickets are $15. 
  • Underwriting free after-school ballet classes for underserved children in the community (our Lasting Impressions program offers the opportunity of direct underwriting). 

  • Scholarships for company members, so all dancers can participate, regardless of ability to pay.

  • Special events for Girl Scouts.

Currently, We offer the following levels for sponsorship packages.
