Columbia City Ballet, like all non-profit arts organizations, is dependent upon additional support from individual patrons each year. These contributions ensure that our productions remain affordable for the community, reach the widest spectrum of individuals, and keep the highest artistic standard of excellence in ballet. Our mission and commitment to entertainment and education is our top priority, and thanks to gifts from supporters like you, Columbia City Ballet can continue to bring our world-class ballets to life on the stage each season.
There is no better way to ensure the growth and vitality of our community than by supporting the arts! The arts inspire, sooth, and entertain us, providing the “special sauce” for our quality of life. Now, more than ever, non-profit arts organizations need your support as corporate and government funding has been dramatically reduced. As you consider your charitable giving for the remainder of this year, please consider making Columbia City Ballet your charity of choice.
Columbia City Ballet is celebrating 55 years of innovative, critically acclaimed dance performance, and educational outreach in the Midlands and beyond. As South Carolina’s largest performing arts organization, CCB enriches the lives and the economy of our community. More than 60,000 people attend our world-class performances each year, resulting in a $2.3 million economic impact. We are more committed than ever to our Educational Outreach Program, enriching the lives of more than 30,000 children each year. An investment in the Columbia City Ballet keeps the “art” in smart!
