Become a Donor

Every BalletMet donor is part of a world-class arts organization, supporting our vision “To create and foster world-class art and artists that inspire Columbus and beyond.”

Donors at the Performance Partner level and above participate in behind-the-scenes programs featuring dancers in rehearsal and comments & questions with Artistic Director Edwaard Liang and other artists. Special Events like The Nutcracker Ball bring supporters together to celebrate while raising funds for BalletMet.

Thank you for your interest in BalletMet.
