During Hurricane Ike in 2008, the ballet sustained total loss and the studio was covered in 8 feet of water. With the help of our wonderful donors, we were able to replace most of our supplies.
This photo shows the water line (or the depth of water) during the hurricane. It also shows how a resilient ballet company made the best of the situation. Our publicity carried on with this photo “Help Galveston Ballet stay Afloat!”.
