About the Board
It is the mission of the Vacaville Ballet Company to encourage arts education in Solano County by means of producing annual semi-professional ballet performances and supporting a company of talented young dancers. We encourage you to get involved in the arts in any way you can. It’s vital to the development of well rounded young individuals and fostering a sense of community.
As a non-profit organization, we rely on the generosity of our donors and the dedication of our hard working volunteers. Together, we are able to present annual Winter and Spring productions, offering local dancers the opportunity to participate in a semi-professional level production and providing the community the opportunity to attend these productions without travelling far. Over the past 20 years, the continued support of the Vacaville community also allows us to provide scholarships to our dancers based on need and merit.
To maintain a semi-professional company of artists to give regular public performances in dance;
To expose various dance disciplines in professional programs for both children and adults;
To create a scholarship program to aid talented students who would otherwise be unable to study dance;
To encourage an interest in dance among children by giving lectures and dance demonstrations in the public schools;
To provide a forum for artists of all disciplines to present their work to the public;
And to promote high standards of quality in the arts, especially in dance.
Interested in supporting your local arts? We have many ways to get involved!
Thank you for your support of the Vacaville Ballet Company!
