Join Our Circle!

Durham Ballet Theatre was founded in 2009 with the mission of providing performance opportunities to budding artists in Durham and surrounding areas. While built on a philosophy of purely classical technique, DBT also embraces elements of showmanship and stagecraft such as aerial dance, costuming and makeup, preparing our pre-professionals for all aspects of a future dance career as well as entertaining audiences of several thousand patrons per year. Our company differs from others in the area because we actively seek individuals of all ages and physical abilities to participate in our productions. We believe this broadens the concept of performing arts in the community and is more reflective of the audiences we seek to build.

In order to achieve our mission we need your help. Durham Ballet Theatre is writing to offer you or your company, the opportunity join our "Circle of Radiance" and bring the Arts to all people in the triangle area by donating to our non-profit Arts endeavors. Your donation will place you in one of our donor tiers and based on the amount of your donation will allow us to thank you publicly in our program playbill.

We endeavor to include people from all walks of life through our open auditions. Our staff and volunteers work tirelessly to achieve our mission of providing a training company for dancers, singers and actors of all ages who wish to:

1) Go on to have professional careers in the field of the performing arts

2) Extend their careers

3) Have a sub-career in the profession of the performing arts

Know that YOUR contribution is truly valued. We are a small company with limited resources, and without your assistance, nothing we do would be possible. We hope that you can help a performer’s dream come true with your donation. The dream of dance is alive because of YOU!
