On Giving Tuesday, give young dancers the gift of self-esteem.
Marin Ballet’s scholarship fund gives dancers from diverse background the opportunity to pursue their love of dance. The rigorous training imparts qualities of confidence, focus, teamwork, and perseverance. While some alums pursue professional dance careers, most of our graduates apply their talents to careers as diverse as medicine, teaching, business, engineering, and more.
Help us earn the $2,500 Challenge Grant
Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar by the $2,500 Challenge Grant donated by a Marin Ballet alum. Give today and help us reach our $10,000 goal.
Marin Ballet develops confident, healthy, and joyous students through exceptional ballet training, performances, mentorship, and community engagement.
