Many thanks for your support of the lauded Children’s Ballet Theater and Tennessee Ballet Theater, a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Your donation will help continue the vision of founding Artistic Director and former ballerina, Mary Van Dyke, of offering the highest caliber of classical ballet training to children of all ages with a company over her school for them to grow into. The partnership between the professional dancers of Tennessee Ballet Theater with the students of Children’s Ballet Theater, allows burgeoning young dancers numerous performing opportunities such as appearances at the Botanic Gardens, various art galleries, the Children’s Museum, a spectacular annual Nutcracker performed at the GPAC, and an annual spot at the Children’s Theater Festival to name a few.
Your tax deductible donation, made payable to Children’s Ballet Theater, not only helps provide a competitive dance education to students of all ages and a company for them to aspire to, but also supports the third arm of Ms Van Dyke’s vision, Memphis Youth Musical Theater. Through her widely known musical theater program, students of all ages learn to sing, dance and act all through beautiful annual productions of classics such as the Sound of Music, Cinderella and Annie.
From offering scholarships to talented students in need, to creating and maintaining magnificent sets, costumes and scenery, to employing the best professionals in the dance and theater industry, your donation ensures that Tennessee Ballet Theater, Tennessee Ballet Theater Junior Company, Children’s Ballet Theater, and Memphis Youth Musical Theater continue to inspire young talent for generations to come!
