Champaign Urbana Ballet is committed to the education and training of young dancers. Through its Scholarship Program, CU Ballet is able to make a profound difference in the lives of talented young people who may not have the financial means to pursue their dream of a life of dance. The company subsidizes cast member involvement where families have financial need, and provides scholarships for dancer training—including boys' scholarships. CU Ballet boasts the highest number of male dancers in a non-professional company in Illinois.
Champaign Urbana Ballet is a not-for-profit organization, and contributions are tax-deductible.
