We need your help! For almost 60 years, Oak Ridge Civic Ballet
Association has staged twice-yearly performances of popular ballets like
The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, and Swan Lake. During this time,
hundreds of area dancers of all ages and skill levels have benefitted from
the chance to perform in high-quality productions in front of thousands of
Due to the pandemic, we were forced to cancel our 2020 spring show that
was already in production. This means we incurred almost all of our
normal expenses for a show but had no ticket revenue to help offset those
costs. We also had to strictly limit ticket sales for the next season’s
performances which cut deeply into our main source of revenue.
Attendance at our most recent show was close to pre-pandemic levels, but
we are still suffering from the effects of these closures.
ORCBA is still committed to providing affordable access to our
performances for both our dancers and spectators. We do this by keeping
production fees and tickets prices low, however, this means production
fees and ticket sales cover just a portion of our staging costs. We rely on
the support of our generous donors like you to help us bridge this gap.
ORCBA is asking for your support to help us continue our nearly 60-year
tradition. Donations of any size will help us continue our mission of
providing affordable access to classical ballet in East Tennessee. You can
support dancers of all skill and income levels in their pursuit of the arts and
sharing that with our community. Most importantly, your donation helps lay
the foundation for another 60 years.
