Texas Ballet Theater #WeAreTBT
(Dallas, TX) – The Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) awarded Texas Ballet Theater (TBT) a $50,000 Arts Respond Cultural District Project Grant to support the company’s upcoming production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
The award is one of 43 grants for the fiscal year 2020, totaling over $4.6 million for arts nonprofits and government agencies across Texas. TBT is one of six organizations in the Dallas Arts District to receive a grant.
“We are pleased to be able to provide strong support for so many high-profile arts activities across the state,” Gary Gibbs, executive director of TCA, said. “The substantial work that our grantees are doing not only advances the arts in Texas, but it attracts visitors and additional dollars to our state and local economies.”
