Nashville Ballet is honored to have the support of local, state and national government arts agencies. Funding through the Tennessee Arts Commission and Metro Nashville Arts Commission supports basic operating expenses for Nashville Ballet, which contributes directly to performances, outreach programs and instruction in our school. 

The Metropolitan Nashville Arts Commission is a department of the Metro Nashville Government. The Arts Commission stimulates and advances the arts to enrich the human experience for the community.

Additionally, you can contribute to arts funding through the purchase of Tennessee specialty license plates.  The State of Tennessee offers more than 90 specialty license plates for Tennessee motorists to display on their registered motor vehicles and proceeds are directed through the Tennessee Arts Commission grant-making process.

Nashville Ballet also receives funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
