Thank you with all our hearts for your support.

We reach out to people with Hope, Beauty, and Love.

You make it possible for us to stay on the road.

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

If you would prefer, click on the Donate button below and follow PayPal's easy steps. Please check the box that authorizes PayPal to share your mailing address with us so we can thank you properly for your gift. Use their Special Instructions section if you wish to designate in whose honor or memory you are making your gift. If you have any problems, email .

Contributions to Ballet Mobile, Inc. are deductible under Section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code.

We are so grateful.

People contribute to Ballet Mobile, Inc. in many other ways: volunteering their time and hearts to make the Ballet Mobile signature flower bouquets, to help with administrative tasks, to present and assist with the Senior Ballet for Wellness program, and to "ROADIE" at house calls. 

Roadies are the true heroes of Ballet Mobile, helping in the set-up and reloading, distributing the flowers and programs to the audience members, and just being WONDERFUL! 

Join us - through volunteering your time and talents. Or just come to a house call and talk to the people we serve and love. It can be as little or as much as works with your schedule. You will be appreciated.

You will feel the same peace, hope, joy, and strength that our audiences - and all of us - do.

During 2020 and early 2021, Ballet Mobile was not able to visit our audiences in person, but we stayed in touch! We made and delivered over 6400 individually-wrapped handmade silk bouquets and ballet cards.
We treasure the notes we received then - and continue to receive - from our precious seniors and their loving families and Activities Directors.
Jonathan Elliott, 1982-2020
Thank you for helping to make our dream come true.
We miss you.
