In a culture where sports tend to occupy the activity time of our youth, it is refreshing and invigorating to see them dedicate their time, instead, to the pursuit of the performing arts. Grace, beauty, technique, stamina and incredible physical fitness; Ballet brings it all together into one phenomenal package. Bayside Youth Ballet strives to bring the very best instruction to all of our students. Your generous donation to our non-profit organization will help to continue the good work that the dance company has brought to Eastern Virginia for over 20 years. Please consider donating today. Your donations are tax deductible and will help us bring the arts to you and to fellow members of this wonderful community for years to come.
