Hope Garden Foundation, Inc.

Hope Garden Ballet Academy is celebrating 20 years in 2018!! It is a milestone!  20 years ago, Mme Ichijo began with 3 students in a Health and Fitness studio, and now we boast international students, competition and scholarship winners, classically trained dancers and citizens, all in the charming town of Poolesville. For more about Mme Ichijo see the staff page

Respecting this milestone, we have launched "Hope Garden Foundation, Inc." to support dancers and students who can not afford the expenses of ballet training.   A 501(c)3, this is a non-profit foundation to provide summer scholarships, toe shoes, training, and enrichment activities among other ballet related charities.  Ballet is life!  See Donation button below.

On Oct. 6th, come celebrate 20 years, and the launch of the new Foundation, with us, at Aix-La-Chapelle Farm in Poolesville, black tie event, starting at 5:30 with cocktails at this fabulous venue.
