Spring will come (eventually!) and green grass will grow for Farm to Ballet (F2B) to dance on. Rehearsals have begun for the 2019 season at six farms.
Ballet Vermont is the only classical ballet company in Vermont. And F2B, a project of Ballet Vermont, has perhaps the most unique social mission in the ballet world––promoting sustainable agriculture!
Let’s look at the other ways F2B is unique not only in Vermont but in the country.
And now the beautiful budget for this fifth season of F2B is coming together, and all fans of ballet have an opportunity to participate in it.
The public sees the beautiful costumes, brilliant choreography and dancing, and props, and hears live music played by a string ensemble of six or seven musicians, all in a beautiful rural setting. And smiles galore!
Now consider the behind-the-scenes costs for growing the company and its mission.
Yes. F2B is now set up to accept monthly pledges in amounts of your choice to be processed through PayPal, a credit card, or a bank account. (Just click on Monthly Pledges above.)
A vibrant monthly pledge program will enable F2B to not only meet the budget but to also provide a measure of financial security that is necessary to confidently make future plans to increase its commitment of service to Vermont.
The Monthly Pledge program will be in addition to the current sources of support for the F2B budgets.
Armies march on their stomachs and dancers pirouette on––money!
