We are excited to announce our 2020 Virtual Nutcracker!

We are excited about our Virtual Presentation of the Nutcracker!    During this year of many trials, we are working harder than ever to produce a Nutcracker performance to give our students the opportunity to perform and be recorded to share with all!   Visitation School and Church have agreed to let us rent their gymnasium, December 11-13th.  

DVD and Flash drives of the Production will be available to purchase.  Order forms will be available in the November Newsletter.  

Ballet Forest Grove has been working hard to make this possible for the students with no ticket funding from an audience this year.  We still have many costs to make this happen; stage lighting, curtain rental, sound equipment, videographers, facility rental and full color memory programs.  All donations are tax deductible.   We have attached a donor form along with a business donation form.  All donors and businesses will be advertised in our program, website and on the DVD/Flash drive.   Please help us cover our costs so we do not have a loss in revenue and can still be able to do our annual scholarships.  

We greatly appreciate your consideration in being a donor or volunteer.  

Without you the production cannot go on!

Congratulations to our 2020 scholarship recipients

Memorial Dance Scholarship

In 2013, prompted by the tragic loss of two sisters who loved to dance, Ballet Forest Grove created the Anna and Abby Dance Scholarship Fund to honor these young dancers.  The 2013 Nutcracker performances were dedicated to the girls and their family.  Funds raised from the performances, along with donations, allowed the scholarship fund to award $3,555 to the first group of scholarship recipients.

In 2016 the name of the Scholarship was changed to the Ballet Forest Grove Memorial Dance Scholarship to include and honor all of the young dancers who have left us too soon. Generous donations and dedicated fundraisers by Ballet Forest Grove have increased the scholarship fund, allowing the committee to award up to $10,000 annually to further the dance education of aspiring dancers.
