Every year at this time, as the weather tries its best to cool down in the desert, haven’t your thoughts turned to the holidays and the celebration of the traditions we hold dear? We sincerely hope that one of your traditional happy holiday memories includes the vision of Maria, Mama Piñata and the little Dulces, the Prickly Pear Fairy and the handsome Caballero, the Snow Queen, and of course, the Nutcracker General, all dancing “A Southwest Nutcracker” at the Tucson Convention Center Music Hall. If we close our eyes for a moment, we can also hear the wonderful musical strains of the Tucson Symphony Orchestra performing Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker as the dancers take the stage.
As with all dance companies in 2020, these beautiful sugarplum visions are not our reality. We are at a turning point in this season, and as we look forward to spring, we realize that we may not be able to continue as we have been with the continued loss of revenue from our traditional sources such as our performances.
Through your support, we hope to successfully meet the challenges we face this spring and continue to keep our doors open for the dance education, training, and performing that our community has come to expect from TRB. Your tax-deductible donation to Tucson Regional Ballet would ensure that our teachers are able to continue to teach and that our students are able to find joy and comfort through dance. And thanks to this year’s CARES Act, even those who do not itemize deductions may deduct up to $300 in monetary donations made directly to charity! In this season of giving, we hope you will consider keeping dance alive through Tucson Regional Ballet.
Tucson Regional Ballet’s goals have not changed; we pledge to continue providing affordable, accessible, and quality ballet to appreciative audiences everywhere. On behalf of the dancers, TRB teachers, and directors, please accept our sincere appreciation in advance for your generosity.
