The New Orleans Ballet Association cannot support its immense programming on ticket sales alone, which covers only 40% of NOBA’s annual budget. The remaining funds needed are raised from individuals such as yourself, corporations, foundations, and governmental agencies. NOBA fulfills a vital role in the international dance community by presenting some of the very best dance in the world, commissioning new works, and providing resources to the community. Through our nationally recognized education programs, NOBA touches the lives of thousands of young people each year with more than 3,000 free classes and activities annually throughout the region. In fact, more than 95% of all that NOBA provides – whether on the stage, in a community center, or in a school – is free to the community, creating unprecedented accessibility and exposure to the art form. Since the founding of the NORDC/NOBA Center For Dance in 1992, over 10,000 children have participated in 26,000+ free dance classes worth over $3 million. Please help us continue our work and efforts to make sure that dance remains a vital part of the cultural fabric of this great city. Please consider contributing to our mission today.
