Dear Friend,
The Alabama Youth Ballet Company relies heavily on the generosity of individuals, corporations, and foundations to
carry out its mission.

As an organization seeking non-profit status in the performing arts field, support from individuals and organizations        
is critical. This support takes the following forms:

  • individual gifts
  • corporate gifts/grants
  • foundation grants
  • corporate sponsorship

All supporters are acknowledged in playbills distributed at all of our productions. In addition, corporate sponsors        
have many opportunities for acknowledgment in various marketing materials distributed by The Alabama Youth
Ballet Company.

Please call our development office at 205-987-7234 for more information about becoming a supporter of
The Alabama Youth Ballet Company.

The Alabama Youth Ballet Company's mission is to:

  • create and present ballets of excellence that are designed to be stimulating, culturally relevant     
    and appropriate to children and adult audiences;

  • create an innovative approach to ballet training that welcomes diversity, and ensures unanimous
    participation and achievement by all students;

  • create sustainable, inclusive and engaging outreach programs that make ballet accessible to
    participants of all racial, cultural and economic backgrounds; and

  • reposition the role of dance in our culture and expand its purpose in the education of youth and
    enrichment of the community locally and beyond.
