BALLET SOCIETY PLUS

$1,000.00

In addition to Ballet Society benefits, you and a guest will have the opportunity to sit in on an actual ACB company class. It’s your chance to be a fly on the wall for the real thing: See what the dancer’s day is like, observe studio culture, and be privy to unfiltered interactions between the dancers and the director.


You’ll also have the first opportunity to sign up for ACB’s annual NYC trip – an exclusive trip with ACB’s directors and dancers for experiences you can’t get anywhere else. You’ll meet and hear from some of the most talented and innovative people in the worlds of dance, photography, art and music.

BALLET SOCIETY GOLD

$2,500.00

In addition to the benefits of Ballet Society Plus, you and a guest will have the rare opportunity to sit in on the rehearsal of a new ballet in the process of its creation. You’ll watch the director shaping his ideas and the dancers trying steps for the first time. You might even see a different version of the ballet than the one that finally makes it to the stage.

DANCER'S CIRCLE

$5,000.00

In addition to Ballet Society Gold benefits, your name is displayed at all performances as a member of the Dancer’s Circle. And, you and 10 of your friends will have the opportunity to sit in on a closed ACB rehearsal.


DIRECTOR'S CIRCLE

$10,000.00

In addition to Ballet Society Gold benefits, you’ll receive an invitation to the annual Director’s Dinner with Artistic Director Lincoln Jones and Executive Director Theresa Farrell. Your name is displayed at all performances as a member of the Director’s Circle.


LEADERSHIP CIRCLE

$20,000.00

Leadership Circle members individually shoulder the greatest responsibility for the production of ACB’s programs. As such, in addition to Director’s Circle benefits, your name is displayed at all performances as a member of the Leadership Circle.

COMMISSION

FROM $20,000.00

The commissioning of works has a long tradition in classical art. Many of the most famous artworks in history are still known by the names of the men, women, and families who provided the means for their creation, including Mozart’s Haffner Symphony and Beethoven’s Razumovsky Quartets.

The creation of new works is central to ACB’s mission. By commissioning a work, you are helping to create new contemporary classical ballets for our time. In addition to Leadership Circle benefits, your name is attached to the ballet in perpetuity.
