SPONSORSHIP & MEMBERSHIP TIERS
BALLET SOCIETY MEMBER
Ballet Society members receive an invitation for themselves and a guest to our Conversations series (three events, two tickets per event, dates announced in the new year), an intimate series of interviews and discussions with ACB’s artists and collaborators, hosted at ACB’s studios on the 32nd floor of The Bloc in downtown LA. Conversations is exclusively for Ballet Society members—tickets are not available to the general public.
As a Ballet Society member, you also get an inside look at each season through the Ballet Annual, a hardcover book with text by ACB Artistic Director Lincoln Jones and photographs of the company by some of LA’s most exciting young photographers.
In addition, Ballet Society members receive advance and preferred seating at all performances and are listed in our season programs.
BALLET SOCIETY PLUS
In addition to Ballet Society benefits, you get the chance to sit in (two seats per membership) on an actual ACB company class. This is an opportunity to be a fly on the wall for the real thing. You will see what the dancer’s day is like, witness the culture of life in the studio, and observe the unfiltered interactions between the dancers and the director.
BALLET SOCIETY GOLD
In addition to receiving the benefits of Ballet Society Plus, you have the rare opportunity to sit in on the rehearsal of a new ballet in the process of its creation (two seats per membership). You see the director shaping his ideas and the dancers trying steps for the first time. You may even see a different version of the ballet from the one that finally makes it to the stage.
In addition to Ballet Society Gold benefits, your name is displayed at all performances as a member of the Dancer’s Circle and you receive a pair of pointe shoes worn by a corps de ballet dancer of your choice (the corps de ballet is the symphony orchestra behind the soloist).
In addition to Ballet Society Gold benefits, you receive an invitation to the annual Director’s Dinner with Artistic Director Lincoln Jones and Executive Director Theresa Farrell, hosted in a private home. Your name is displayed at all performances as a member of the Director’s Circle and you receive a pair of pointe shoes worn by the principal dancer of your choice.
Leadership Circle members individually shoulder the greatest responsibility for the production of ACB’s programs. As such, in addition to all the Director’s Circle benefits and having your name displayed at all performances as a member of the Leadership Circle, your sponsorship is verbally acknowledged before each performance.
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.
Contributions can also be made by check payable to American Contemporary Ballet, 700 S. Flower St., Suite 3200, Los Angeles, CA 90017. For more information please call 213-304-3408 or email email@example.com
