1801 Campaign

When we opened our beautiful new home at the Cincinnati Ballet Margaret and Michael Valentine Center for Dance in September 2021, we were also thrilled to unveil our outdoor Community Terrace and Performance Plaza. Our dream was for this space to serve both the Cincinnati Ballet family and the broader community with performances, events, and other outdoor gatherings. The Plaza has done just that, beginning with a special dedication and performance for the community last Fall.

By making a gift of $1,801 or more, you will be permanently recognized at the Center’s Community Terrace & Performance Plaza. Your name will be engraved on the top step of this highly visible space at the Center. 

This is the final opportunity to leave your permanent mark on Cincinnati Ballet’s history and future. Space is extremely limited, and engravings are reserved on a first come, first serve basis.  Don’t delay…reserve your engraving today!

 Engraving Details

Each engraving is limited to 27 characters (including spaces). Cincinnati Ballet will contact you to confirm how you’d like your name to appear on the Plaza. You will have one opportunity to make a change to your listing before the engraving occurs.

Sample Engravings:

            Eric and Jessica Johnson 

The Eric Johnson Family

            Eric, Jessica, Daniel, and Olivia Johnson

 Payment Options

All engraving gifts must be paid in full by July 31, 2022. 

  1. Make a one-time payment of $1,801 or more.
  2. Set up a reoccurring monthly payment plan.  

An initial deposit of $101 is required to reserve your engraving. Your credit card will then be charged an equal amount on the last day of each month, culminating with a final payment made on July 31, 2022.


Contact Ilona Piaskowy, Individual Giving Manager, at ipiaskowy@cballet.org or 513.873.5813.
