Raising the Barre

Bus Funding

The Raising the Barre bus funding program gives qualifying schools additional funds to support the educational experience of attending Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre’s student matinees at the Benedum Center for the Performing Arts in the heart of Downtown Pittsburgh’s Cultural District. Raising the Barre also offers professional development for educators to better prepare their students for attending the ballet. 

Bus Funding is limited and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to schools that complete the requirements listed in the application.
