Ballet Arts of Jackson

Ballet Ticket Buddies

As we all know state subsidy funding for school field trips is lower than ever before. We now have a new program called Ballet Ticket Buddies. The children in this program are unable to go to performances of any kind. When you sponsor a child under our program, you give children the opportunity to see a live performance. The goal of Ballet Ticket Buddies is to provide experiences which enrich the lives of students in many ways; cultural, educational, and motivational.

Many of the students who attend the ballet have never attended a fine arts performance of any kind.  They have not had the opportunity to experience the beauty and power of a live performance.  In an era of recorded performances, conversations, and photographs, a field trip to the ballet provides the unique experience of watching a live performance on a stage.

An educational presentation before the ballet involves students in learning to perform a small section of the ballet. Students begin to understand the integration of music and movement.  They are able to observe and understand, more intelligently, what a ballet dancer does as a performer. 

A quote from Winston Churchill made during World War II when the suggestion was made to remove funding for the arts in order to provide more funding for the military  
“What are we fighting for?”

If children are not given the opportunity to watch and participate in the arts, “What are we fighting for?”
