Ballet Idaho Outreach Brings Cultural Nourishment to Idaho Public Schools
Ballet Idaho impacts our community in a number of ways; both through educational programming that extends our company and faculty into the community and through inviting audiences to come and join us inside our theater venues for special performances.
Ballet Idaho’s Educational Outreach and Inreach programs are supported through individual membership gifts as well as through generous contributions from a charitable trust, foundations, and corporate giving.
