The AMB Guild is an auxiliary component of American Midwest Ballet, the region’s professional dance company and the only arts organization of its kind in the area. Our dynamic group of volunteers supports the ballet through boutiques and social events while enjoying the company of fellow arts supporters. Members are recognized on the donor list in the ballet company’s programs.

Children of Guild members are invited to join the AMB Junior Guild, which hosts special events throughout the year planned specifically for our youngest patrons.

OUR Mission
  • Assist in the activities of AMB at the request of the Artistic Director and Board of Directors.
  • Broaden awareness and promote the activities of AMB.
  • Fundraise for AMB through events and boutiques.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend meetings and join a committee. If you are a new member, we extend a special welcome to you. Guild members will receive more information about meetings scheduled throughout the year. Can’t make it? No problem! Notes will be emailed to active members after each meeting.


There are many ways to get involved with the Guild, from one-time event volunteering to recurring committee work. Broadening our base of active Guild members helps sustain our work in the future.
