Chicago Ballet Theatre
Dear Supporter of the Arts:
I would like to introduce you to Chicago Ballet Theatre, the non-profit entity of The Chicago School of Ballet. CBT is a pre-professional ballet organization that provides aspiring young dancers the opportunity to perform
full-length classical ballets, as well as cutting-edge new and existing contemporary works by accomplished choreographers. Your help is needed so we can continue performing our classical ballet productions by obtaining funding for set design materials, facility expenses, set construction and costumes per production. Steven Norman, owner of The Chicago School of ballet and CBT’s, Artistic Director and Master Instructor, (former Soloist and Corp de ballet with the San Francisco Ballet) and his elite faculty, bring experience, insight and expertise to their CBT dancers. Since ticket revenues cannot provide adequate funding to produce our performances, we need your support to deliver on our artistic commitment to each and every one of our students and stakeholders.
One of CBT’s goals is to foster the development of a new generation of artists by preparing its students, interested in a dance career, for the professional/collegiate dance community. It is our belief that in order to educate young dancers properly, they must be exposed to not only high-quality training, but a wide variety of performance opportunities as well.
