SVB Backstage

SVB Backstage is a devoted group of members who believe in the importance of supporting the dancers of Southwest Virginia Ballet through volunteerism and fund-raising. The fundraising allows SVB to furnish dancers with performance shoes, company dance wear and costumes FREE of charge.  Backstage also provides funds for merit and need based scholarships for Roanoke Valley dancers.

Current fundraisers include:

  • The Ballet Boutique, available at all major SVB performances – the boutique is stocked full of tutus, crowns, nutcrackers, handmade jewelry, t-shirts and more.
  • The Nutcracker Gala, usually held in the fall, is an evening of fun, silent auction, food, drinks and dancing for the 21 and older crowd.

Backstage Volunteers

Volunteers are an integral part of SVB’s success. They are a diverse and dynamic group who are dedicated to promoting the art of dance in the Roanoke Valley.

One important thing they all share is the sense of satisfaction that comes from volunteering their time and talents. Among the many tasks our volunteers perform are set design and construction, costume construction and alterations, publicity and marketing, boutique sales, and backstage production management.

If you would like to join us, complete the SVB Volunteer Form below and e-mail the SVB Volunteer Form to carol@svballet.org.

SVB Ballet Boutique

The Ballet Boutique sells handcrafted tutus, SVB t-shirts and other items to raise money for SVB performance expenses and scholarships. 100% of the proceeds go directly to the ballet. Our one-of-a-kind tutus are available at the Jr. League’s annual Stocked Market and at the boutique table at any SVB performance.
