Giving Program

Classical Girl Giving is a program established in 2016, in which The Classical Girl donates to organizations, dance companies, choreographers and individuals who strive to take ballet out into the world, or use contemporary ballet to deliver important social messages. The program also supports organizations that, in turn, provide financial resources to deserving, self-producing artists.
