As The Washington Ballet embarks on new ways to serve our community with the transformative power of dance, we want to assure you that there is much beauty ahead, waiting on the other side of this crisis. Now more than ever, we are reminded of our shared humanity and the need to care for one another.

Together, over the decades, we have built a strong and resilient community. Today, we urgently need your support. The Washington Ballet impacts thousands of lives through our art form both on the stage and in the community. While our programming will look different in the short term, we maintain our commitment to sharing the beauty of dance with you.

Along with our Board of Trustees, dear friends of TWB from across the country have created the STRONGER THAN EVER FUND, which will sustain the ballet during this time of crisis. Every gift will go to ensure that we are able to return to the classroom, studio, and stage stronger than ever.

Join us as we look toward the future!

About the Fund

About the Fund

By xmbphotography

When COVID-19 health restrictions prevented realizing performance revenue overnight, we developed the Stronger Than Ever Campaign to triage the effects this would have on our bottom line.

  • It first covered underwriting revenue losses for 20 cancelled performances.
  • It enabled the dancers to safely continue training at home by providing necessary flooring, shoes and personalized physical therapy services.
  • It provided critical technology investments for digital school programming.

But, we have only just begun.

Moving forward, the Stronger Than Ever Fund will:

  • Support $2,500,000 in salaries and benefits for TWB artistic staff and dancers.
  • Provide support for original digital content to serve our broad community.
  • Maintain our four campus facilities and keep them secure until we can reopen to the public.
  • Most importantly, it pays for the essential needs remaining, in a new operating environment.
