Anaheim Ballet used video to put their story centre stage
If you’re a local nonprofit, how do you tell your story outside of your community? When Anaheim Ballet was looking to expand their message and audience, they turned to YouTube. Traditionally, ballet was only available live on stage and at a cost. Anaheim Ballet reduced those typical barriers of entry and made ballet accessible to a global audience by creating YouTube videos that could be seen anytime, anywhere and for free.
Using video allowed them to not only share their stories, but also build an engaged global online community. In their YouTube videos, Anaheim Ballet created a discussion with their viewers by asking questions and seeing responses in real time. Their weekly videos and connection with their viewers has helped this local nonprofit hit more than 46 million video views from all around the world.
Anaheim Ballet have used YouTube to gather an online community and supporter base of over 80k people.
