Give Creatively

In this season of renewal and return, we invite you to support TBT’s forward momentum by giving creatively.

To give creatively is to engage with TBT in new ways. Whether you are a donor, subscriber, event attendee, TBTS family, or volunteer, we hope you will grow with us in new opportunities as we look forward to another season on stage and expand our programs in the community.

Texas Ballet Theater also celebrates the extraordinary career of Company Dancer Carolyn “Carrie” Judson. You may know Carrie as the Sugar Plum Fairy, Snow Queen, Alice, or Cleopatra; there are so many memorable “Carrie moments” that it is impossible to have a favorite. To watch Carrie dance is to join her on a unique journey of expression, emotion, and supreme artistic talent. After 19 years of dancing at TBT, we hope you will join us in extending our deepest gratitude to Carrie for sharing her passion, leadership, and love of ballet with all of us.
