Help for BTB
Save our School

Why support the BTB?

  • BTB receives subsidies from the canton for the trainees of the recognized EFZ/professional diploma program. However, these are by far not enough to cover the costs of the student’s education nor to ensure the future of the school.
  • BTB must finance its continued existence through its own and third-party funds.
  • It is our goal to recruit at least 500 people for our “S.O.S – Save our School” program by the end of the year.
  • The Ballet School is a non-profit organization and is categorized as an independent association. All donations are tax deductible.

Talk to your friends! Every contribution helps to save this valuable organization and lead it into a successful future.
