The mission of Ketchikan Theatre Ballet is to provide high quality dance instruction to support each student’s talent and creativity, while developing a strong sense of self-awareness and self-discipline. We strive to inspire and delight audiences while highlighting our students.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
Ketchikan Theatre Ballet not only provides a quality dance education, but develops discipline, organizational skills, and a positive self-image in our students. Providing our students with these tools and skills, as well as offering a creative outlet, is our first priority. Our goal is to reach as many of Ketchikan's youth as possible. With Pick.Click.Give. funds, we can extend our reach even further by offering more scholarships and expanding our outreach program.
Tuition costs, dance gear, shoes and more can add up, especially for our upper-level students who train six days a week in multiple dance disciplines. With the help of Pick.Click.Give. funds, Ketchikan Theatre Ballet will provide more scholarships to a greater number of SE Alaska's youth. In addition, Pick.Click.Give. funding can help us build our outreach program. Since the fall of 2014, Ketchikan Theatre Ballet has partnered with Ketchikan Public Library to present small performances free of charge to the community at large. These mini-performances benefit children and parents alike who may not be able to afford to see a performance. This year we have expanded our outreach to include short classes at the library for participants from our local Head Start Programs and Big Brothers/Big Sisters, as well as sending our instructors into preschools and public schools. These literacy and movement-focused classes include story time, character exploration, and creative movement. It is our hope that this outreach program gifts others with the benefits of dance.
