Supporting Huntsville Ballet School
We are committed to providing a positive working environment, individual attention to each student, live piano music for some of our classes, and multiple performance opportunities for our dancers.
HBS is a not-for-profit organization, where donations are tax deductible. It is important to note that tuition only covers approximately 50% of the cost of operating our school. Support from our stakeholders, both past and present, are vital to the continued operations of our organization. Patrons can support us through these various means:
Dancer Presentation Bouquets
Fall & Spring Fundraiser – Mum/fern plant sale
Purchase Performance Videos & T-shirts
Nutcracker Gifts – shop at the boutique, purchase Nutcracker charms
Brick sale – Leave a legacy on our grounds
Huntsville Ballet Guild Sponsored Events - Nutcracker Ball & Tea, Wine Event
Purchase a Season Subscription
Purchase Ads in our Season Program
The money raised from these events is essential. All monies raised from fundraising events go right back in the organization to help improve all aspects of dance education at Huntsville Ballet.

There is no correlation between parents’ personal gifts to the School and a child’s progress in HBS classes or in performance casting.
City of Huntsville
The City of Huntsville has recognized our value to the community by giving us a $100,00 grant in 2016 to be used over the next three years to make capital improvements to our facility. An article written by Anne Claire Vollers for AL.com recognizes Huntsville Ballet Company by Mayor Battle calling us "one of Huntsville's crown jewels.” Mr. Otto, who also serves on Mayor Tommy Battle’s Arts Advisory Council, says “Leadership is all about that sentiment.” Mr. Otto says, ”I’m very proud of the fact that Huntsville is a hub for the Arts right now” and he wants to see it grow.
