Your Support Matters

our Performances, costumes,
Tampa City Ballet invests in theater rentals, production sets, backstage crews, and costumes.
our outreach programs
With your generosity, the company will provide a greater number of families with the opportunity to join us through our “On Your Feet” Program where we teach dance to underpriviledged children and cultivate scholarship recipients who may potentially become the future stars of Tampa City Ballet.
The dancers' shoes
Did you know that a pair of pointe shoes costs from $60 to $120? But did also know that they can last from two hours to two days worth of dance?
Pointe shoes are a main tool for the dancers. You could help us provide these shoes to all of our female dancers.
Tampa City Ballet works with innovative and emerging choreographers to create unique works for the company and the trainees.
Every piece is thoughtfully formulated, staged, revised, and perfected with the result of a flawless piece of performing art.
You will be contributing to the scholarships Tampa City Ballet gives the talented, promising children chosen at our Outreach Program for their dance education at America's Ballet School. A tuition for an 8-year-old dancer is approximately $1,400.
