A unique way to support your young dancer.

The Madison Ballet Parents Organization (MBPO) helps families become more connected to our school and productions through volunteering, fundraising, board service, or other support roles. Whether you have 10 minutes or 10 hours to contribute, there are many ways to be involved. 

As the parent or guardian of a currently enrolled School of Madison Ballet student or Nutcracker cast member, you are already a member of the MBPO! 



MBPO Mission

The mission of the Madison Ballet Parent Organization is to provide a means by which parents can become an active part of the School of Madison Ballet/Madison Ballet community and work together with staff and students (through fundraising, outreach, and engagement activities) to build a strong school environment to support the development and benefit of the School of Madison Ballet/Madison Ballet and all dancers.




  • Any parent/guardian/other individual with a student currently enrolled at the School of Madison Ballet.
  • Each member of the licensed teaching and administrative staff working at Madison Ballet.
