More About Our Company
The John E. Profant Foundation for the Arts is a nonprofit 501c3 organization. Our mission, to assist developing artists of all ages, is founded on the belief that as we support the lives of several artists, they will enrich the lives of countless other people. Since 2000 we have funded hundreds of scholarships totaling over $250,000 for developing artists of all ages.
We are blessed to have the opportunity to share such a beautiful work as “Rosabella” with the world, both the book and the ballet, and in turn “Rosabella” will help us to give scholarships in the future. A portion of the proceeds from the sale and licensing of all “Rosabella” products will go directly to support our scholarship fund.Read More

She was always barefoot, regardless of the season. Occasionally she stopped to gather more wildflowers...

It has been my pleasure to be a part of the production of “Rosabella” the book, ballet, and film. Years of thought went into the writing and illustrations done by a local artist, Gabriele de Ginant. Additional years of thought and research went into the ballet by choreographer Francisco Martinez. Now that our Foundation is at the threshold of a general presentation to the public, I am poised to explain the story and its ramifications for parents as well as children and the media. Rosabella emerges as a natural being “gifted” by each of the Elements. She is happy and dances her way through the seasons enjoying every natural river, lake, mountain, animal,...
