Become a member of PALS today!

Hello Louisville Ballet School families!

The mission of PALS 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. This year, PALS has implemented some new changes that will further enable a creative and fun learning atmosphere for our children. Some of the focus has shifted from fundraising to community building. For example, as a PALS member, you will receive exclusive invites to social events outside of the studio.

It is very important and vital to our organization to have 100% family membership.  If you have not already signed-up to be a member of the 2013 – 2014 PALS, please do so now.  You can sign up with this user-friendly form and PayPal or you are welcome to complete a green paper form and pay for your membership dues by check or cash at the PALS drop box at St Matthews studios.

There are many benefits of becoming a PALS member including:
  • Tax deductible donation
  • Adult Division class card discounts ($5 off the 4-class card and $10 off the 10-class card)
  • PALS e-mail communications and insider updates
  • Exciting volunteer opportunities including The Brown-Forman Nutcracker and the LBS Spring Showcase
  • Your name listed in the Audience program for all Louisville Ballet performances at The Kentucky Center for the Arts

In addition, PALS hosts a private group on Facebook. If you are currently a group member, you must have updated your membership by no later than October 1st or you will be removed from the group. If you are a Facebook member and are not a member of the group, please let me know and I will be sure you are added!

Thank you to all the PALS members who have already signed up for various committee positions. There are still a number of positions available (including positions on the Spring Showcase Committee) if you are still interested in becoming more involved with the PALS. You can see what leadership positions are available here.

This year is going to be a great year and I really hope to enjoy it with you and your families! Thank you for your continued support.
