Tucson Regional Ballet (TRB) is a 501(c)3 non-profit ballet company offering pre-professional ballet and dance for youth age 3 to adult. TRB is the home of A Southwest Nutcracker and has had students dancing for over 40 years. We are hosting a fundraising drive to raise money towards replacing aged A Southwest Nutcracker costumes/tutus, studio maintenance and continuing to support operating expenses which keeps tuition affordable. The love of the arts, dance and music continues to flourish at TRB with the return of Brittany De Grofft (TRB alumni and American Ballet Theatre ballerina) as Artistic Director.
Tucson Regional Ballet, like most art/dance businesses, has struggled during the pandemic. The studio has continued to offer in person instruction, with Zoom options as needed. The studio did perform a quite modified A Southwest Nutcracker in December 2020. The dancers performed onstage at the Tucson Convention Center in both April for their spring show (Giselle) and the Academy's recital in May. These successes are due to the ongoing dedication of staff, dancers and parents paralleled to the generosity of the community and donors.
We appreciate your support keeping the studio and dancers on pointe. Life is short, go dance!
