THIS IS NOT A DRILL

Ballet San Jose NEEDS your help!

Our board has announced an emergency funding campaign in an effort to raise $550,000 by March 14th. Without this money Ballet San Jose will be forced to close its doors leaving 33 company dancers unemployed and 300 students without a place to train. This would be a HUGE loss of art and culture for Silicon Valley and devastating to our extremely talented and diverse company. 

Thanks to our CEO Alan Highline, our board of directors, and our beloved Artistic Director José Manuel Carreño Ballet San Jose is NOT going down without a fight. 

Here is where you come in:

We have 9 days to #SaveBalletSJ and we desperately need to get the word out about our situation. People need to know what is at stake here. So please, please help get the word out. (Tumblr, we know you’re great at sharing things that are important to you, we saw how fast that Sergei video went around! ) We desperately need momentum on this campaign, so please do what you can, donate, Like, Reblog, Share on Facebook, tweet about it, Instagram it, yell it from the rooftops, scream it at strangers!   

Here is the link to Donate and to read the official press release.

The dancers are doing their best to stay positive as they continue to rehearse for the next program: Bodies of Technology. Everyone at Ballet San Jose has faith in the Ballet community, and we strongly believe that if we fight, we can #SaveBalletSJ. #SV4BSJ
