Leadership Barre

The Leadership Barre Society (annual donors of $2,500 and above) helps to provide the foundation for Pennsylvania Ballet's success and stability. A contribution at this leadership giving level helps the Ballet to attract and retain world-class dancers, artistic staff, choreographers, and musicians, as well as generate new works that are meaningful to contemporary audiences.
 
Leadership Barre donors provide the support necessary to preserve Pennsylvania Ballet as a leading cultural institution in Philadelphia – from allowing the Ballet to uphold the highest artistic standards to enabling the Ballet’s outreach and education department to continue their award-winning programs that reach nearly 10,000 local, underserved school children each year.
 
By becoming a Leadership Barre donor, you will enhance your experience at the Ballet while deepening your appreciation of dance. You will have several opportunities each season to have exclusive access to the Company and artistic staff – from toasting a glass of champagne with dancers during intermission to celebrating the end of the season by attending a cocktail reception in a private home, you will truly become a Pennsylvania Ballet insider.
