EPP_1483a lcv edit_edited.jpg

Built on a vision and a dream, Metropolitan has grown into an institution – in the best sense of the word – committed to the highest ideals of artistic skill, personal growth and discipline, educational enrichment, and life and career preparation. In its 28 years, Metropolitan has had a profoundly positive influence on thousands of children and young people in the Greater Philadelphia region.


Your partnership, your support, and your investment are key to Metropolitan’s ability to move forward with its proven-successful programs and ambitious plans for the future. Please support this outstanding record of success and service with your most generous financial commitment. 


With your support, we will offer more scholarships, train more dancers, commission new choreography from acclaimed and emerging artists, and increase our educational programs for those with limited access to the arts.


Your tax-deductible gift helps Metropolitan Ballet keep classical dance alive in our community.



Bravo to all of the amazing individuals who help make Metropolitan productions and events a reality. From Board Members to costumes committees, Front of House to backstage helpers, we love our volunteers! Interested in joining our corps of volunteers?
