NYSB Pandemic Appeal 2020
As a patron, your gift to The New York State Ballet enables us to reach wider audiences and create exciting new productions. We are proud to be a leader in the vibrant dance scene of Upstate New York.
New York State Ballet is at the start of its 2020-2021 season. Due to Covid-19, we had to close the school and company for four months (March-June 2020), and need your support more than ever as we reopen the school safely and begin rehearsing with the company. We are following necessary protocols to keep our students, staff, and company members safe.
This December, we present 'The Nutcracker' as our first production since the start of the global pandemic. In order to follow state and federal guidelines, and to keep our audiences safe, we have cancelled our fall production, and will begin to rehearse the company in mid-October.
New York State Ballet's Training Academy now offers a unique Graduate Program. This rigorous program provides aspiring professionals with the chance to join the company's corps de ballet. Additionally, dancers travel to Boston, Pittsburgh, New York, Toronto and other cities for national exposure.
Please join us in supporting the 2020-2021 season with a monetary gift. Your tax-deductible contribution allows the New York State Ballet to continue its mission of preserving the art of classical ballet with exceptional productions, and will directly support the dancers whose careers have been put on hold due to the pandemic. Thank you!
