Having a ballet center in the East Austin community will make a significant impact on the quality of life for the individuals we serve. As a non-profit organization, Ballet Afrique relies on the generous support of sponsors to run and create scholarships for under. Each year, our sponsors help us serve more than 1000 school children youth and adults in some capacity be it in the classroom or in the events we perform at. We ensure that our members are growing up with the arts in their lives within their community. Our sponsors are a vital part of our efforts to make the good life in Austin even better.

Sponsorship packages are customized based on the goals and objectives of your organization, and can include networking, co-branding and team engagement benefits. If your organization is interested in sponsorship opportunities, please call China Smith at 512-766-8442 or email Balletafrique@gmail.com
