Help DSBPA Withstand COVID-19

 
Durham School for Ballet & the Performing Arts has been a part of the Durham, NC community for over 10 years. Through the years, we have enriched the lives of so many students by bringing the joy and passion of dance into their lives.

We and other small businesses are taking a big hit during the mandated closures and necessary health initiatives of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the stay-at-home and social distancing orders, our studio has been closed since mid-March. This closure is putting a strain on our business and we are seeking assistance during this time to assure that we can and will open our doors again once it is deemed safe for us to do so. We've completed the small business loan applications, but have not been granted any as of yet.

It is so incredibly difficult for us to reach out and ask for help during this time, but any donations you're able to make would be more than appreciated. Funds raised will go toward continuing to offer affordable virtual classes, paying instructors, studio and building upkeep and rent, and generally ensuring the future of the studio once our community of dancers is allowed to be together again.

DSBPA is more than a studio -- it's a home away from home. We're a family. In order to give all the people that give DSBPA its essence the support they deserve during this time, we're turning to our community -- to you, personally. We hope you'll consider becoming part of the DSBPA family of supporters.
