About

PALS

Parent Association of the Louisville Ballet School

Mission

The mission of the Parent Association of the Louisville Ballet School is to encourage and support the students of the Louisville Ballet School in their efforts to learn and grow in their study of dance and appreciation of the arts. The Louisville Ballet School has an outstanding reputation as a leader in the artistic community.  PALS members help maintain this reputation while assisting in producing a creative and fun learning atmosphere for their children.

Vision

PALS aspires to provide volunteer support for the programming and productions of the Louisville Ballet School, fundraising support for special events benefiting our students, supplies necessary to ensure the comfort and safety of our students and their families, and to serve the School population at-large by creating a sense of community that extends beyond the dance studio.

Membership

PALS Membership ($25) is separate from each student’s annual registration fees. Meetings are scheduled throughout the school-year. Meeting notices will be sent via email blast and posted on the bulletin boards at the St. Matthews and Downtown studios.  Additional information can be found on the PALS webpage and PALS Facebook group.

Involvement

We encourage you and your family to become active members of PALS and help maintain the Louisville Ballet School’s outstanding reputation as a leader in the artistic community. PALS involvement includes, but is not limited to “FUN”-raising events for families and students throughout the school year, hosting receptions for School activities, providing holiday treats for the students at Louisville Ballet School and for the teachers during teacher appreciation week, and helping to create a warm and inspiring community space for our families and students at both studio locations. A special group of PALS also organizes and staffs the Louisville Ballet Nutcracker Boutique in order to raise funds for our upper level students to attend the Southeast Regional Ballet Association (SERBA) festival.

Donation of Supplies

You can find the donation list on the PALS Bulletin Board in the lobby at the St. Matthews Studios.

Volunteer Time

It takes many parents to organize and coordinate the various events which immensely benefit our children. Therefore, we ask parents to volunteer in order to help evenly distribute the work, give our children the best experience possible and create lasting memories. Without volunteers, many projects and events would simply not be available.

Annual Dues

Annual Dues $25              (Separate from student’s school registration fee.)
