Dancer Sponsorships

Sponsoring a dancer with a gift to Milwaukee Ballet helps to ensure that our immensely talented artists have support throughout the season as they perform and bring the joy of dance to our community.

Donors can be recognized as a dancer sponsor with a certain level of gift or above.

Sponsorships run for the entire season and include exclusive incentives.
