Love ballet and the arts community? Join Young Patrons Circle!

We don’t yet know when it will be safe for dancers, musicians, dressers and crew to return to work of what performances will look like in the age of social distancing. An uncertain future notwithstanding, we maintain a vision of gathering again in the sacred space created between artists and audiences. Your YPC subscription for next season will help sustain us as an organization. Knowing you plan to be in the audience helps PNB plan for the future.

Young Patrons Circle, or YPC, is a subscription-based membership group that brings together young professionals and community leaders in their 20s and 30s who share a love of PNB, good food and drink, and adventure.

YPC members enjoy a curated subscription package that includes an exclusive lounge, post-show happy hours, and invitations to social events throughout the year.

YPC FAQs

What’s YPC?

Young Patrons Circle, or YPC, is a subscription-based membership group that brings together young professionals and community leaders in their 20s and 30s who share a love of PNB, good food and drink, and adventure.

YPC members enjoy a curated subscription package, an exclusive lounge on YPC Night at the ballet, post-show happy hours, and invitations to social events throughout the year.

 Why do I have to subscribe to join YPC?

YPC is designed to provide a social network for its members and to foster the next generation of arts patrons – this can only happen if members are regularly attending the ballet. Subscriptions are generously discounted to maintain accessibility, and YPC members enjoy a host of additional benefits beyond PNB’s excellent subscriber perks. We recommend that patrons who prefer to buy single tickets join The Pointe, PNB’s email list for 20 – 40 year old ballet fans.

What are the benefits of YPC membership?

YPC members enjoy a specially discounted subscription package, an exclusive YPC Night Lounge (bonus: you can bring a friend who’s not a YPC member), post-show happy hours hosted by Pineapple Bar & Bistro, invitations to special monthly events, presale access to Trivia on Tap and Backstage Bash, and more.
