Become a BRAVO Member

Make a Difference, and Have Fun Doing It!

BRAVO, the Ballet Resource and Volunteer Organization of the New Orleans Ballet Association, is a group of over 200 volunteers whose time and talents help ensure that NOBA’s nationally award-winning education programs and Main Stage Series of world renowned dance companies thrive in this city. Every year, BRAVO helps make possible over 5,000 tuition-free dance classes and activities after-school at numerous community sites; opportunities for advanced study and guest artist residencies; and costume and production needs for NOBA’s annual production of The Nutcracker Suite through the Nutcracker Legacy Fund. Over the past 29 years, NOBA has provided almost $8 million of tuition-free classes to over 27,000 individuals, many of whom would not otherwise have the opportunity to study this art form.

As a BRAVO member, you will receive invitations to membership meetings and other FUNdraising events. You will also help plan and raise funds for the celebrated annual BRAVO Gala and the glamorous Men and Women of Fashion’s Prix d’Elegance Luncheon and Fashion Show that benefits NOBA. BRAVO welcomes you to join a wonderful, collaborative group of community leaders for another exciting year.

PLUS, you can support BRAVO’s Nutcracker Legacy Fund.

About the BRAVO Nutcracker Legacy Fund

The Nutcracker Legacy Fund is dedicated to the acquisition and maintenance of the Nutcracker costumes, sets, and props used annually by the over 200 participants of NOBA’s annual The Nutcracker Suite production. With your support, we can replace tattered costumes for several scenes and ensure our costumes stand the test of time, worn for years to come to transform our dancers into their legendary roles. Your contribution this year will help NOBA present an exciting Nutcracker Suite production to ensure its participants will shine with Clara and friends this holiday season.
