We are so grateful for your help.
Your support makes it possible for us to be on the road again.
During the 2020 and early 2021 pandemic, Ballet Mobile was not able to visit in person,
but we stayed in loving touch through deliveries of 6400+ individually-wrapped handmade silk bouquets and ballet cards for all our audiences.
We treasure the notes we received then - and continue to receive - from our precious seniors and Activities Directors.



Ballet Mobile, Inc. is a public charity, exempt from Federal income tax under 501(c)(3).

Generous Ballet Mobile donors ensure the continued ability of Ballet Mobile to carry out its mission of bringing healing ballet to as many people as possible in non-traditional locations. All Ballet Mobile members and directors are volunteers.

Donations pay for the silk flowers that Ballet Mobile volunteers make into bouquets for every single audience and staff member to dance with during the performances and to keep as a gift of love. Contributions also help pay the rent at our Arts Center Headquarters, as well as help to pay for roadie supplies, equipment maintenance, costumes, and even some of the dancers' ballet shoes. Each pair of pointe shoes costs over $100.00 and lasts only two or three house calls.

Every dollar matters and makes a difference. Checks can be made out and mailed to:

Ballet Mobile, Inc.

Howard County Center for the Arts Studio 18

8510 High Ridge Road

Ellicott City, MD - 21043
