We assist in aligning your company's philanthropic goals with one of our productions or programs and provide a comprehensive package of marketing and business development opportunities. Ballet Austin's reach expands past Central Texas where it performs each season through national and international tours. 

Ballet Austin's Development staff works closely with your team to personalize marketing, business development and employee benefits that help meet your company's goals.

Sponsorship levels begin at $7,500. 

Community Engagement 
In addition to the performances Ballet Austin brings to the stage each season, we also reach 57,000 people through our community and education programs, such as Night of Community. We offer meaningful and responsible programming to people of all ages throughout Central Texas, assuring accessibility to traditionally under-served populations. Sponsorship/underwriting levels begin at $5,000. 

Fête & fête*ish
Be a part of the Austin's "Best Black Tie" event, our annual fundraiser.

Fête & fête*ish

Each fall, Ballet Austin opens both our performance season, and the Austin gala season, with Fête—where Austin’s most notorious and respected business leaders, social royalty and arts patrons gather to mix, mingle, dine, dance and celebrate the magic of the arts in Austin. Named one of Austin's "Best Black Tie Events" year after year, Fête has become one of the most anticipated fundraiser galas in Austin, synonymous with elegance, excitement and innovation.

fête*ish, the companion party to Fête, is the naughtier, more rebellious part of the evening.

Multiple ticket/table and sponsorship opportunities are available each year at various levels. Check back for more updated information or email Director of Development, Christi Cuellar Lotz.
