Tucson’s only professional ballet company has announced an innovative new fundraiser to celebrate this romantic season and to get their talented dancers back on stage. For the Love of Ballet will feature a silent auction and a new and free to the public digital event on their YouTube channel.
Ballet Tucson hopes to raise $40,000 by March 1, to support the organization’s continuing efforts to welcome its professional dancers back to the stage in the fall and to plan its 36th season.
The fundraiser includes an exciting virtual silent auction, featuring a curated selection of eye-catching items and entertaining experiences that make a perfect gift–whether for a loved one or one’s self. Highlights include a luxury staycation at Westward Look and many other generously donated items from local businesses, including El Conquistador, Tucson Mountain Stables, Dahlia Floral Studio, Barrio Brewing, Locale Neighborhood Italian, Fox Restaurants, La Suprema, Golf N’ Stuff, Casa Video, Di Luna Candles, Tucson Tea Company and more.
Fans are invited to bid here until February 20th: https://bit.ly/btvalentinesauction
The award-winning ballet company also created a highly anticipated interview-based video, produced by the Ballet Tucson Bravo League–a newly formed group of young professionals with members from across the United States. Audiences will experience exclusive interviews about the company’s 35th anniversary season away from the stage, reimagined company ballet classes, 2020 Pop Up Performances, favorite past performance pieces, and more while enjoying inspiring dance clips.

About Ballet Tucson’s 2020/2021 Season
Ballet Tucson has stepped into its 35th season with determination and vigor. The new Ballet Tucson Bravo League was founded to provide additional support to the organization and to foster a new generation of ballet supporters. This group of accomplished young patrons implements innovative marketing strategies and plans digital events to support important fundraising goals. Last summer, patrons and community members came together to achieve a $50,000 fundraising goal that was equally matched by loyal supporters Florence and Larry Adamson.
