Houston Ballet is committed to the health, safety and welfare of its community, including its artists, students, staff and their families. Consistent with this commitment, and in response to the developing situation with respect to the coronavirus (COVID-19), Houston Ballet is restricting visitor access to its building. The processing of Graceful Givings donations has yet to be scheduled for the 2020-2021 year.
Since 2006, Education and Community Engagement (ECE) has given away hundreds of dance costumes, shoes and other varieties of dance accessories to Houston-area schools free of charge in our community sponsored event called Graceful Givings.
With the help of a group of volunteers who donate countless hours of their time, we give away over $35,000 of dance apparel annually. These generous donations are given to schools throughout Houston and benefit over 1,500 students each year. Special thanks to the dance stores that continue to support this event each year: Georgie Girl Costumes, Jazz Rags Dancewear and Leapin' Leotards.
