Makaroff Youth Ballet (MYB), a partner with Ballet, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that seeks to provide high-quality pre-professional ballet performance and education opportunities to the youth of the Fox Valley region. It is the only non-profit youth ballet company in the area. Our ability to fulfill our mission depends upon your support, financial and otherwise.

Makaroff Youth Ballet continues to successfully fulfill its mission because of the generosity of its donors. Those who contribute to MYB have a strong desire to see the art of ballet thrive within the community. Many of our donors are family members of dancers and alumni who are investing in the health of the organization. Proceeds are used to cover expenses, provide costumes, and support repertoire renewal.
