Become a Member of the Barre

Orlando Ballet invites you to indulge your love of ballet by becoming a Member of the Barre and a supporter of the Company. The quality of our work cannot be sustained without significant community investment. As a 501 (C) (3) organization, Orlando Ballet relies on your philanthropic support and your patronage to further our mission to entertain, educate, and enrich through the highest quality of dance. Our ticket sales and school tuition cover approximately 50% of our annual operating costs. The remaining funds are raised from tax-deductible donations made by individuals, corporations, foundations, and government agencies. As a Member of the Barre, you become an essential part of Orlando Ballet. From cutting-edge new works to stunning classics, every donation counts and every Member makes a difference.
