The Nutcracker Charity Ball is the signature event of Mobile Ballet, raising funds for our education and outreach programs, as well as a children’s charity selected each year by our Board of Directors. Children’s charities with 501(c)(3) non-profit status serving residents of Mobile or Baldwin County are invited to apply through a formal grant application process which begins each January. For more information, please call the Mobile Ballet office at (251) 342-2241.
