General Donations

Support our mission to use the power of dance to inspire and nurture the art of classical ballet through artistic excellence, performance experiences, and education and outreach activities in the community. In support of Outreach & Education, our school and our performances.

Chan Matching Grant

We are truly greatful for all of our donors. Without your belief in us, we can't reach our goals and grow into the ballet company we are poised to become.

Thanks to Drs. Kathy and Tony Chan we are closer to realizing our dream of building a small professional corps of dancers in Huntsville, AL. Through their generosity, we have received a three year grant for the support of a full time male professional ballet dancer. Please consider contributing to the Chan Matching Fund so that we can continue to grow the Huntsville Ballet Company and create the dynamic artistic performance that our wonderful city deserves.

Pointe Shoe Fund

Traditionally the tools of the trade for the ballerina, pointe shoes are fairly expensive. Depending upon the dancers foot, and the choreography, a dancer can go through a pair of point shoes in one performance--sometimes more! Help keep us on our toes. Donate a little or a lot to keep our company dancing. Any amount is welcome!
