Membership Committee

Membership Committee

Help us give back to current members and attract new ones. Committee members focus on driving member growth and retention and planning the events that bring us closer together – and closer to ballet.

"Being involved in the Junior Council as Fundraising Chair is the perfect opportunity for me to stay close to classical ballet – an art form that I spent most of my youth studying and have admired my entire life. The access to the dancers provided through our events and membership perks is unrivaled. I have been able to connect on a personal level with many of them, and I especially enjoy studio rehearsal visits - watching the likes of David Hallberg, Daniil Simkin, and Isabella Boylston up close is breathtaking. I find that leading our fundraising efforts is the most fulfilling way I can give back to an art form and a company that has given me so much throughout my life."
