Mission Statement

The purpose of this volunteer organization is to work together to support and promote the interests of Lone Star Ballet in greater Amarillo and the surrounding communities through fundraising and special events.

No dance task in our community is too small or too big for us!

The Lone Star Ballet Guild is a fundraising group of dedicated volunteers who support Lone Star Ballet with style and enthusiasm. Lending their diverse talents and business acumen, the Guild volunteers seek support from deep within the greater Amarillo Area.

The mission of LSBG is to provide a vital link between Lone Star Ballet, its artistic and executive leadership, its board of directors, and the Amarillo community. It exists to support the mission of LSB and provide the necessary assistance to organize all performances. Through its activities and fundraising, the Guild is by nature philanthropic, creative, entrepreneurial, and industrious. LSBG is the major support group of LSB. Guild membership is open to all who wish to participate in the support of Lone Star Ballet.
