BalletMet is an acclaimed dance company and home to one of the largest schools of dance in the Midwest. In planning for the future, BalletMet leaders crafted a bold strategy to purchase a facility and transform it into a dynamic dance center that could accommodate rehearsals for the professional company, classes for more than 1,000 dance students, a “black box” theatre for informal performances, and administrative offices. Benefactor Group conducted a community-wide feasibility study, which affirmed BalletMet’s capacity to raise $6 million. Subsequently, Counsel guided them through every phase of the capital campaign, which secured more than $6.2 million in gifts, and helped the company achieve financial stability.
