BAE Annual Fund 

Students come to us from near and far, but they all share one important quality – an unwavering passion for dance. BAE is dedicated to supporting our students’ passion and guiding them toward finding their highest potential.

We prepare students for success in the dance world through comprehensive ballet training combined with professional-caliber performance opportunities. Graduates of BAE are currently members of professional companies around the world, including New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Miami City Ballet, and Pacific Northwest Ballet.

BAE is dedicated to nurturing young aspiring dancers, regardless of their financial circumstances. Through BAE’s Financial Aid and Male Scholarship Programs, we provide over $180,000 in tuition and housing assistance every year. To continue to provide essential scholarships and the highest quality performance opportunities to our students, we need your support.

Every gift of any size means so much to our students. Your donation to Ballet Academy East will help us foster the dreams of our dedicated young dancers and will sustain our vision of supporting the artists of tomorrow.
