State Street Ballet: Support

State Street Ballet Donors

In a perfect world, the arts would be self-supporting. In reality, ticket sales cover only half of our expenses. When you make a donation, you ensure the future of dance as an art form and make dance a vital part of the Santa Barbara community. Thank you for helping us accomplish this important mission. We are immensely grateful to all of you!
