Both Ballet Etudes and BE School of Dance are 501(c)3 non-profits. While other dance studios in the Valley have owners who reap profits, our studio has no such owner, but rather a supportive group of parents and friends who ask for nothing in return and believe in the mission of our studio and company.

The front desk, cleaning, and maintenance staff of BE School of Dance are made up solely of volunteers. These individuals give freely of their time, and we sincerely thank each and every one of them, because without them, our studio would not be able to function. However, we are always in need of support. The studio is constantly looking for additional assistance so if you are able to give in any way, or know someone who may be able to provide a service such as grant writing or fundraising, please do not hesitate to contact us. Even the smallest of donations will help build the solid foundation and future of the studio, and all donations are tax-deductible.

From the lobby and office furniture, to the sound systems in each classroom and even the printed schedules and flyers you see in the lobby, the majority of our studio is built from the kindness of the families of our wonderful dancers. No gift is too small.
