The dancers of the Sacramento Ballet have been making a big push to keep their company alive, and this week, they're declaring an "S.O.S."
www.saveoursacballet.com is a Web site created by the dancers in an effort to rally community support for the Sacramento Ballet, which has been struggling to stay afloat amid mounting financial hardships. Although the ballet has been forced to cancel its upcoming Community Center Theater performances, the dancers have taken it among themselves to spearhead fundraising events and organize creative performance opportunities within the community--one that is determined to keep Sacramento's cherished art institutions afloat.
Throughout "Save Our Sacramento Ballet" week, several local businesses are helping the dancers by donating a percentage of their sales to the organization. Among the participants are Firefly Salon & Boutique (5539 H St.), Zuda Yoga (1515 19th St.), Arareity Jewelry and Art Glass Gallery (1021 R St.), Rubio's Fresh Mexican Grill (3551 Truxel Rd. #A) and HeavenLy's Yogurt (5535 H St.).
The dancers will also be hosting a silent auction at Vizcaya Pavilion & Mansion (2019 21st St.) on April 23. Local businesses are donating auction items, and the company is still accepting contributions.
