Ballet Sponsorship:

Twin Cities Ballet of Minnesota, is a public, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. To fund its operations TCB relies on fundraising events, ticket sales, silent auctions, raffles, and most of all donations from private and corporate sponsors. Help keep the dream alive; your tax-deductible support is greatly appreciated.

Our Volunteers

Twin Cities Ballet relies on the support of the amazing women and men who donate their valuable time to volunteer for us. With over 200 volunteers, TCB is able to create our high-quality and professional productions, run educational outreaches, and bring dance and the arts to our community.

Our main volunteer organization, the “Friends of the Ballet” consists of 6 separate committees: Costume & Wardrobe, Hair & Makeup, Events, Props, Boutique, and Marketing & Communications. Lead by our amazing leads–Irene Wagner, Lori Moore, Katie Sutherland, Maria LoPresto, Emily McGuire, Emily Winn and Tianna Votiso– these committees consist of parents, grandparents, relatives, friends, and supporters who generously volunteer their time to sew, glue, prepare the flowers, organize, build and fix props, lay down the floor, etc. 

Many thanks to our amazing volunteers!
