Critical Support Fund

For the past 64 years, Tulsa Ballet has proven itself a leader in Tulsa’s arts and culture sector. Despite this, the COVID-19 pandemic has jeopardized it’s future, and that of performing arts organizations worldwide. Now more than ever, your support is vital as we navigate these difficult times with our signature innovation and tenacity. Tulsa Ballet is resilient. Once this crisis ends, we will still be here, dancing our hearts out, and ready to welcome you back with open arms. We cannot wait to see you back at the theater.

From now until October 31st, 2021, your contribution to our Critical Support Fund will be generously matched dollar for dollar up to $25,000 by the Barnett Family Foundation.

Additionally, Tulsa Ballet’s community outreach programs aim to make ballet accessible to underserved populations in northeastern Oklahoma and the Tulsa Center for Dance Education features robust educational programming for all ages. By supporting the Tulsa Ballet, you are advocating for your local community.
