Board of Directors

   2016 – 2017


Since Galveston Ballet is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization,  it’s board of directors is a volunteer board who oversees the day-to-day operations of the ballet.  The board members meet once a month and are either parents of current students, parents who’s child may have moved on to college or beyond, and members of the community who care about quality dance for our community.  These caring board members work hard and are giving of their time and talents including; grant writing, promotions, accounting, set building, sewing, volunteer coordinating and all other positions that may need overseeing.  This is a great group of adults who unite in the goal of creating a quality experience for students wanting to dance.
