The AYB relies on grants, sponsorships, private donations and ticket sales to continue its mission. Ticket sales support theater rental and production costs. Members support the company through an annual orientation fee to offset personal training and costume maintenance. Join us in our mission to serve local schools, educators and the special needs community by becoming a sponsor today!


Levels of sponsorship range from $50 to $5000. Major sponsors receive prominent placement on all advertising. All sponsors are listed in our performance programs and communicated yearly to the public.

Sponsor Dancer

You can also sponsor a dancer. Students are referred to AYB every year by their school district who show promise in dance but are in need of a benefactor. You could change that child’s life!


We can always use office supplies such as copy paper, post-it notes, pens and paper clips. We also are always looking for safety pins and coated hair ties!

Other Ways

To support the AYB you can:

  • Purchase tickets (from $12-15) and attend our shows! We offer group discounts and private events before or after performances, such as backstage tours and hands-on classes for children. Contact the Paramount Arts Center Box Office at 606-324-0007.
  • Volunteer using your own talents! We can use people to market through mailings, signage and advertising. Costumes must be organized, repaired, sewed and maintained. Repair and upkeep of our historic site, the gateway to the Ashland Arts District, is an ongoing need. We also must build and paint scenery and move it before and during performances.
