Invest in Our Future…

Many thanks to our donors and contributors to last year’s A Home of Our Own fundraiser! We were able to raise enough money to move downtown and build 3 state of the art studios, a parent lobby, flex space and more! 

Our dreams keep growing and we are currently fundraising for our new Performance Studio. This will be an additional studio to hold more classes and will double as a black box theatre, allowing for in house demos, senior recitals, and small productions and plays. The Performance Studio will have seating for an audience of approximately 50-75 patrons, have lighting and sound capabilities, and will be a perfect place to train technical theatre students.

With your help, we can transform the former Hickory Daily Record building into the new home of Hickory Ballet & Performing Arts. This move will not only inspire and empower our students but help us to reach more children and youth in Catawba County.
