We Need Your Help
For 65 years, Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet has provided access to the students who have sought the best in ballet training. Now we are calling on our community to support us during this time of uncertainty. We launched our relief fund in March as our ticket revenue, Summer Program revenue, grant opportunities and other sources of income started to dry up as the result of COVID-19. We need your help if CPYB is to continue to provide students with world-class ballet training for years to come.
A Message from our CEO
To recover lost income from canceled performances, changes to the structure of our residential 5-Week Summer Ballet Program and prepare for an uncertain future.
