Support the Stars of Tomorrow!


Hickory Ballet and Performing Arts is proud to provide financial scholarships to committed dancers in our community.  As a 501(c)3 non-profit, we aspire to enrich the cultural landscape through the training, education and art of Classical ballet and its related art forms.

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people to transform their communities.  We are raising money for our dwindling HBPA Scholarship Fund, in a time in which we know that more families than ever may need to rely on financial aid to provide dance training to their children.

Your donation to HBPA will help support passionate dancers in following their dreams.  <3
