An important update from Ballet Chesapeake Leadership:
We trust you heard the news this morning about cancellation of public gatherings in order to contain the spread of COVID-19. Ballet Chesapeake’s performances of Swan Lake on April 4 and 5 at Towson University are being postponed. This is a heartbreaking but necessary decision to protect the health of our community. We are diligently working on rescheduling the performances and hope to notify patrons as soon as we have concrete information.
Non-profit organizations like Ballet Chesapeake have no contingency budgets in the case of civil emergencies like this one; our resources overwhelmingly go to producing work for the stage and training dancers. We will be following up with ticket buyers in the coming weeks with options if a cancellation does occur. In the event that we are not able to reschedule performances, we ask patrons to consider donating the cost of tickets as a gift to Ballet Chesapeake. If you do choose to donate, your donation may be tax deductible; consult your tax advisor.
We are more committed than ever to bringing great art back to our stage as soon as possible. On behalf of everyone at Ballet Chesapeake – dancers, staff and faculty – we truly appreciate your investment in the ballet and in our ever-important arts and culture community.
