Please consider making a difference and creating an opportunity for The State Ballet of Rhode Island as we begin our dancing journey through Season 57.
As alumni, we all share something in common--countless memories and opportunities during our dancing years at The State Ballet of Rhode Island.
We remember it like it was yesterday. Those first steps onto the stage in a role you've dreamed of after working tirelessly for months in preparation. You were all sweaty and sore, but all smiles as were your family and friends, when you rushed back to greet them after the last bow. You still have the pictures to prove your proudest moments and great accomplishments, perhaps in a box of mementos where you grew up. We all have The State Ballet of Rhode Island to thank for those incredible memories of performing on stage in timeless classics like Coppelia, Giselle, Graduation Ball, Walpurgis Night, Sleeping Beauty, and Americana, to name a few. We bet you can still do the Mazurka 6-step, no matter how long you've been away!
The State Ballet has had a successful 56 years that you have been a part of at some point in your dancing career, but we need your help to keep our company thriving and keep the opportunities coming for our dancers of future generations.
Please donate to keep that favorite costume you wore refreshed and ready for the next performance. Please donate to have our older videos, even film reels, and other historical archives, to be restored and transferred to DVD for preservation of our favorite shows from years past--starring you! Perhaps we could offer them to you for sale as a way to remember your favorite moments on stage. Please donate to offer scholarships to budding ballerinas, especially those so talented but unable to take classes because of hard economic times. Please donate to help young school children unable to afford full price tickets to attend our school performances, or help us engage in community and educational outreach programs to bring ballet into the classroom. We're sure you remember dancing in one demo or another at a small elementary school in RI!
Kindly take a moment and review the levels of giving and when you select the option to donate, you may enter any amount of your choosing.
We encourage you to extend this invitation to fellow alumni through email or social media. All gifts truly make a difference. Thank you so much for your support of the State Ballet of Rhode Island!
