The Women's Committee of The Washington Ballet

The Women’s Committee of The Washington Ballet advances The Washington Ballet’s three-pronged mission of performance, education, and community engagement and, as ambassadors of the ballet, raises awareness of its tremendous artistic contribution to the Greater Washington, DC region.

The Women’s Committee conducts exciting fundraising activities to support The Washington Ballet and its Washington School of Ballet, one of the most prestigious professional training grounds in the country. It sponsors exclusive special events, wine tastings, silent auctions, and parties and holds dedicated fundraising efforts, such as underwriting a ballet each year. Its members connect many in our community to the ballet while providing significant amounts of their time, talent, and treasure.

Membership is open to those who have demonstrated a commitment to the Ballet and can contribute their time, talents, abilities, and resources to help The Women’s Committee support The Washington Ballet’s mission.

Women’s Committee members pay annual dues of $300 and buy an annual season subscription to performances of The Washington Ballet.

Benefits include:

  • Invitations to all Women’s Committee events, parties, exclusive speaker lectures, and field trips
  • 15% discount on individual tickets to full-subscription series performances and The Nutcracker at The Warner Theatre. (Restrictions may apply.)
  • Special recognition in TWB performance programs and on the TWB Website
