It’s So Easy To Donate!


There are two ways to donate. Become a Ventura County Ballet Sponsor at any level listed to the right or make a contribution for a designated item like Pointe Shoes below.

  • Pointe Shoes

    Every dancer needs pointe shoes to dance, twirl and pirouette. Pointe shoes can cost upwards of $100 a pair and dancers usually use at least three pairs per performance.

  • Adopt a Ballerina

    What ballet performance would be complete without delicate tutus? Adopting a ballerina helps us create costumes custom designed and fitted to each performer.

  • Backdrop

    Scenery and backdrops help to make performances come alive, The VCBC spends almost $1500 on these costs per performance. Help us paint our landscape!

  • Educational Outreach

    Help send a child to the ballet! This heartwarming sponsorship will allow our community and youth to meet professional dancers. $50 will send 5 children to the ballet.

Dream a Little Dream…

Ventura County Ballet, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) corporation, is driven by a strong volunteer and donor base, Red Shoes, which is the fundraising arm of Ventura County Ballet Company. The mission of this group is to preserve and promote ballet as part of the rich arts fabric of Ventura County.

Red Shoes funds complimentary ballet tickets and free outreach demonstrations to underserved children in our community. We also fund operating expenses for the performances of the ballet company.

These performances, which feature professional dancers, serve as a training ground for Ventura County Ballet’s pre-professional dancers who go on to professional ballet companies and major universities to study dance. The funds raised by Red Shoe’s helps Ventura County Ballet inspire and shape the “dreams “of our community’s youth…and the young at heart.
