Youth ballet performs in own theater -- Gazette.Net


After months of fundraising, the Maryland Youth Ballet performed Sunday in its new Black Box Theatre in Silver Spring.

The nonprofit was selected to be part of the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County’s Power2Give program and as a result of the funds received, along with donations from its March gala, it was able to create the theater in its Silver Spring studio. The ballet can now offer more opportunities for the community.

The theater cost $18,650. So far, the ballet has raised $10,625 through its Shining in the Spotlight Fund-A-Need fundraiser and the Power2Give campaign. The group wants to raise $8,625 more to buy seating risers and black-out window shades.

Donations may be made at, at its downtown location or by calling 301-608-2232.
