Individual Circles of Giving - Levels and Donor Benefits

Support from individuals such as yourself makes it possible for us to provide wonderful performances, the highest quality dance training, and opportunities for thousands of people to enjoy dance.

Adopt a MOVE school or Student!

BalletNova's mission is to provide dance training and performances to the community, and with MOVE we are working with local schools to empower children and motivate them towards excellence through dance. Learn more about the program, or make your donation NOW!

Shrink your environmental footprint!

Green your home by choosing to match your natural gas supply with Carbon Offsets from WGL Energy. These Carbon Offsets in turn support cleaner air and water in our region and projects throughout the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Electricity from WGL Energy comes from 100% wind power. Sign up today!

Have up to $100 ($50 for natural gas, $50 for electricity) go back to BalletNova for each household that enrolls with WGL Energy. Proceeds support our Arts Education initiatives in our local communities.

All of this can happen without requiring you to write another check or change the way your natural gas or electricity is delivered or billed. (Watch this video for more information on choosing an energy supplier and Energy Choice).
