Ballet Vero is a nonprofit organization that passionately strives to preserve the art form of traditional Classical Ballet through the education of children and adults. We achieve our mission by providing a diverse range of classes for all age groups and skill levels and by offering an active performance schedule including major performances of full length ballets and small performances of excerpts from the Classical repertoire. We serve our community by exposing local residents to this prestigious art form and by inspiring young dancers to pursue artistic expression and funding their passion through our need-based scholarship program.
Our Pointe Toward Success program, which targets dancers ages 7-14 is intended to help those with a budding passion for ballet to pursue a mastery of this prestigious art form. It is through this study that dancers build the skills, dedication and self-esteem necessary to become professional ballet dancers, teachers or excel in whichever career field that they choose.
Along with the scholarship program, we are also helping local dancers through our emergency fund. Many of our students have faced unexpected financial hardships and need short-term assistance with needs like shoes, leotards and tights. The COVID-19 crisis has affected our program significant and like so many other successful arts programs, we rely on the support of our community to allow us to acheive our mission. Your donation will help us to keep changing the lives of young dancers in Vero Beach.
