A message from our Company Dancers…
As you know, we have the distinct honor of being Company Dancers for St. Tammany’s Own Resident Ballet Company, BALLET APETREI. As such, we receive training in a nurturing pre-professional environment under the direction of established, professional instructors with amazing resumes. In addition to the best training possible, we have the opportunity to dance alongside International Guest Artists who are invited to instruct and perform in our annual showcase performances. In May of 2016, we will attend the Regional Dance America Festival in Phoenix, Arizona. Our dancers will participate in master classes, audition for scholarships and perform in three evenings of performances. At the RDA Fesitval, our dancers will perform for recruiters from professional ballet companies, colleges and universities.
While that would certainly be reason enough to support Ballet Apetrei, we want you to know that our company is about so much more! For example, did you know that we raise money to help bring our art to the underprivileged students in our area? Did you know that when we’re not in the studio you can find us helping in the community at various events, or exchanging our pointe shoes for hammers as we build homes with Habitat for Humanity or helping 2016 Flood Victims in Denham Springs? BALLET APETREI is definitely making us better dancers, but more importantly, it’s making us better individuals! If we follow in the footsteps of those company dancers before us, we may become professional dancers, or doctors, or scientists, or mothers. Whichever path we choose, we know the lessons we’ve learned as BALLET APETREI Company Dancers will make us more disciplined, respectful, and appreciative individuals.
At this time, we hope you’ll strongly consider supporting the organization which means so much to us!
BALLET APETREI is a 501©3 non-profit organization, and as such, relies solely on the efforts and generosity of its members to be able to continue to bring our art to the community. Please consider a personal membership, and if possible, pass along the sponsorship form to a business you would like to see support us.
While a Membership Drive is held each year in October, you may become a member of BALLET APETREI at any time!
Your membership will be for one full year, regardless of when you join.
