NEWDO Annual Fund Drive

Thank you for helping NEWDO maintain our mission to provide high quality performance and education opportunities in classical dance. As we sat down to share our 2018 annual campaign with you, we were in awe at the quantity of experiences donors like you bring to our community. These opportunities include:


  •  The Green Bay Nutcracker Ballet at the historic Meyer Theatre with a local cast of almost 100 performing on stage with professional dancers from New York City Ballet and Broadway, Milwaukee Ballet and The Carolina Ballet

  • Our partnership with Civic Symphony of Green Bay, which brought 28 young dancers in colorful costumes dancing on the Meyer Theatre stage with live music

  • Our partnership with Youth Symphony at St Norbert College and the Green Bay Boys and Girls Choir, collecting many of the best young performing artists in our community on the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts stage to present Oh Fortuna from Carmina Burana, Peter and the Wolf and The Dying Swan



  • Our Summer Ballet Intensive with guest faculty Randi Osetek and Dameon Nagel from Carolina Ballet teaching ballet, pointe and variation and Angie Flanagan teaching modern and flamenco to dancers ages 9 and up

  •  Master Classes on the Meyer stage during Nutcracker with Milwaukee Ballet dancer Janel Meindersee and in June with Dameon Nagel, ballet and Angie Flanagan, modern

  •  Boys in Ballet Breakfast with Stephen Hanna of New York City Ballet and Broadway and Eric Johnson of Milwaukee Ballet. Boys of any age and ability were able to sit down with professional male dancers to discuss the opportunities and experiences of being a boy in the world of ballet


  • Nutcracker Repertory Days where dancers of all ages and abilities can come learn dances from our Nutcracker Ballet



  • Free tickets to the Green Bay Nutcracker Ballet at the Meyer Theatre to United ReSisters, our local veterans, Casa Alba, Families of Children with Cancer, and The Boys and Girls Club of Green Bay


  • Workshops at assisted living facilities and the Aging, Disability and Retirement Center


  • Presentations at the Life Long Learning Institute and Neville Thursday Dinners


  • A post Nutcracker Ballet question and answer session with the Girls Scouts of America, Casa Alba and the United ReSister. These groups were able to ask our dancers questions about the Nutcracker and dancing

 From our list of performers who have gone on to careers in ballet companies to our current resilient cast of young professionals, your investment in our small organization has had BIG results. We have a dancer in our ranks who first discovered us through Families of Children with Cancer. You might see a beautiful ballerina when you watch her dance, but her family sees a survivor. Another young dancer was diagnosed with CP and doctors told her parents she would never walk. She didn’t listen. Not only is she dancing in our Nutcracker, she’s en pointe in the Waltz of the Snowflakes! Together, we continue to make Green Bay a place where our children can grow and thrive.
