(This amendment provides $30,000 the first year from the general fund to the Virginia Ballet. It serves as the only professional ballet company serving one of the largest communities in the Commonwealth, namely Hampton Roads. It serves as a performing company and one of the finest training facilities on the East Coast. The services include a full subscription season featuring a core company and some of the finest dancers in the world serving as guest artists. The outreach programs in Athletes for Kids, a partnership with the National Football Players Fathers association, provide week-long residences for those children in challenged socioeconomic areas. Last year residencies included Chicago, Philadelphia, Norfolk, and Belfast, Ireland.)
