See what happens before the curtain goes up!

Before the curtain goes up on opening night, it takes hundreds of hours of ballet class and rehearsal, wardrobe and stage preparations and many, many costumes and pointe shoes.

Most importantly, it takes YOU.

Without your support, the dancers – and the productions – would never make it to the stage. Ticket sales cover only a portion of the cost to bring together the many elements of each production.

You make the difference, and you make it possible. Consider a gift today at balletaustin.org/donate.
