Southwest Virginia Ballet

As originally broadcast on August 5, 2020, on Blue Ridge PBS …

From free classes for Roanoke City schoolchildren to free performances for families with special needs, Southwest Virginia Ballet has transformed lives throughout the state through dance, artistry, and passion … despite a website that features none of those things.

As a 30th birthday gift to Southwest Virginia Ballet, digital marketing specialist Carrie Cousins provides the nonprofit with an online transformation of its own, along with additional marketing help from Wordsprint and Press Press Merch.

This episode is the first of four featuring nonprofits in Roanoke, Virginia, struggling to survive the COVID-19 pandemic and hoping to thrive once it’s over.

Major funding for BUZZ is provided by Partners in Financial Planning, a Southwest Virginia-based investment management and financial planning firm.
