Throughout December, we are highlighting each of the organizations featured in our Jersey Give-Back Guide, an online portal for year-end giving that makes it easy to donate to some of New Jersey’s most effective nonprofits. Today we feature Atlantic City Ballet.
Organization name: Atlantic City Ballet
Communities served: Primarily South Jersey but tours all of New Jersey and East Coast
WHAT WE DO: The Atlantic City Ballet is a world class professional ballet company. We have 27 dancers from all over the globe including the US, France, Latvia, Italy, Romania, Japan and Brazil. We stage classical as well as non classical ballets for audiences of all ages. We are most noted for our innovative ballets such as Dracula, our full length Carmen and Caught Up In The Swing, a comedy ballet that is an homage to Atlantic City. We believe in bringing ballet to everyone so Ms. Pap creates ballets that will appeal to the first timer as well as ballet lovers.
WHY WE’RE GREAT: When you come to see one of our performances you will see dancers of the highest caliber. From the moment you enter the theater it is an experience you will not forget. Our Artistic Director welcomes you before each performance and all audience members have the opportunity to meet the dancers after each show. We see to it that seeing one of our performances will be an unforgettable experience that you will want to do again and again.
HOW YOUR DONATION WILL HELP: By making a donation you will help us by allowing us to create the beautiful productions audiences come to expect from us. One tutu can cost upwards of $1,000. There’s sets to create, dancers salaries and professionals needed to work behind the scenes. Your donation will help us keep our dancers dancing.
NEEDS: There are more ways to help us. In-kind donations are always welcome. Volunteering your special skill can make a difference. We also have other giving opportunities like sponsorships and ballet memberships.
