Thank you for your interest in supporting Metropolitan Ballet Theatre. Whether you have been a friend of Metropolitan Ballet Theatre for years, or you are the parent of a new student, we need your help. Ballet, by its very nature, is a costly art form. Ticket sales cover only a portion of expenses to produce professional performances.

In an effort to keep the performing arts affordable to families, MBT works to keep performance tickets and tuition affordable, offering financial aid when appropriate. MBT is dependent on donations from individuals and businesses like you to support community productions, outreach and service to the community, and educational programming. As we celebrate our 30th year, please consider that a gift to Metropolitan Ballet Theatre is an investment in a local treasure.
