Bayer BalletThank you, in advance for preserving the arts in our community!
Bayer Ballet Company 501(c)3 was formed to to serve as a community service organization, committed to providing accessibility to the art and culture of the Vaganova method of classical ballet. Our mission is to enhance the cultural well-being of our community by creating equitable accessibility to the Vaganova method through educational and interactive events and world-class performances, which expose and explore the intricacies of this method; thereby, providing the purest experience and insights into this artform. We strive to cultivate and foster an appreciation and love for the artform, providing opportunities for emerging artists in our community to engage, educate and collaborate with world-renowned master artists.
As we adapt to the current conditions, we remain dedicated to providing a healthy and creative outlet for dancers to develop their art and share it with the community. This would not be possible without you! Your donation will help:
preserve professional quality arts in our community;
allow us to continue creating world-class performances, including the annual production of Snow Queen;

Pacific BalletWe follow the philosophy of Danilova and Balanchine, who believed that the quality of ballet instruction was more important than the quantity. This philosophy is followed by some of the most selective schools in the United States, including the School of American Ballet in New York City. We encourage our students to have other interests in addition to ballet, knowing that not everyone plans a career in dance. We also provide daily classes for intermediate and advanced students who are very serious about their studies. Your donation helps us keep our costs down for our students and keeps them on their toes! Donate
