Virginia Ballet Company, a 501(c)(3), was established to provide classical ballet education of the highest quality and stage pre-professional productions in the Washington metropolitan area. In 1950, our Founding Artistic Director, Tatiana Rousseau Tupine began sharing her classical Russian ballet training. Since then, Virginia Ballet Company has expanded to include a contemporary dance program with a focus on modern dance, through a merger with IMPACT Dance Company. The Business Sponsors Program was established to allow local businesses/corporations and individuals to partner with Virginia Ballet Company and School to advance the mission of providing high quality dance education and to stage pre-professional productions in the Washington metropolitan area.

Dates: Sept 1 – August 31

The planned season for 2016-2017 consists of the following:

  • 6 performances of Nutcracker (Dec. 2016)
  • 3 performances Sleeping Beauty (April, 2017)
  • 3 IMPACT Performances (June, 2017)
  • 1 performance of our summer concert Precedence (August 2017).

This is a total of 13 performances.

All Corporate Sponsors will be listed as a corporate sponsor in all programs within the qualified dates and dependent on the date that sponsorship is received.  For example, if sponsorship is received in Oct, the business name will appear in all programs for all 13 performances.  If the sponsorship is received in January, the business name will appear in the program for the 7 remaining performances.

All ads appearing in programs will be in black & white.

All performances are held at the Ernst Cultural Community Center on the NOVA Annandale campus with the exception of the IMPACT performances which will be held at the James Lee Center in Falls Church.  The Ernst Theatre holds approximately 480 patrons.  We estimate that in the course of 13 performances, 4,000+ patrons will attend Virginia Ballet Company and IMPACT performances.
