We were lucky enough to find BalletX shortly after moving to Philadelphia 13 years ago. Since then, we have been fervent supporters of this wonderful company. Truth be told, they have become family to us. As family, we want them to enjoy many years of growth while they continue to entertain, enrich, educate, and bring joy to dance lovers all over the world. To help BalletX achieve this goal, we have included a bequest as part of our estate planning. We hope you will join us as members of the Legacy Society by including BalletX in your estate planning as well!

We have enjoyed BalletX since Christine Cox and Matthew Neenan founded the company. In that time, we've watched remarkable progress in the dancing and have been impressed with the company's attention to the community through their commitment to elementary school classes and their pop-up performances. BalletX has grown from a start-up to a nationally recognized dance organization that provides a high-level professional platform for choreographers, both established and new. To help all of this continue into the future, we have decided to make a legacy commitment, and hope others will join with us in doing so.
