Ballet Arizona posted this news to Instagram:

We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded $600,000 by the office of Governor @dougducey through the American Rescue Plan Act, which is working to provide nonprofit organizations across the country with COVID-19 relief funding.

“We are beyond grateful to Governor Ducey and his entire office for their continued support of the arts and Ballet Arizona,” said Jami Kozemczak, Ballet Arizona Executive Director. “The coronavirus pandemic was a devastating time for everyone, and arts organizations were also among those deeply affected. We still have yet to recover fully to 2019 numbers in terms of attendance and revenue, so this funding could not come at a more critical time as it truly gives us the runway we need to recover, rebuild, and position ourselves for growth.”

“This funding is a testament to the belief that arts organizations are a crucial component of our community,” said Artistic Director Ib Andersen. "During the pandemic, we turned to the arts to sustain us, heal us and keep our spirits alive. We consumed music, literature, and digital performances in order to find respite through entertainment. The arts provide joy and inspiration and are a necessary part of healthy and vibrant communities. We are deeply grateful to Governor’s Office and the State of Arizona.”
