Discount Ballet Tickets for WV Parents

West Virginian parents who receive CHIP and/Medicaid assistance for their kids can get discount Charleston Ballet tickets for just $5 each thanks to the Ballet For All program. You just have to purchase tickets in advance at the box office as supplies are limited.

I cannot emphasize enough what a positive impact Charleston’s arts scene had on me as a very poor child – one who went from a turbulent home of domestic violence to a loving but struggling single-parent home. I’m so grateful to the kind friends and their parents who took me to the WV Symphony, The Charleston Ballet and Mountain Stage, all of which gave me an intense interest in and love for the arts that I may not have developed otherwise. Those experiences had a direct influence on my pursuit of writing about music, first through this blog and eventually for The Charleston Gazette.

So take your kid to the ballet, it’s a memory that will have lasting effects.
