Our Patrons are at the heart of our organisation – giving essential financial support to the Company, allowing us to carry out our day-to-day activities, helping us to stage productions, train and develop a new generation of dancers and engage new audiences, providing them with a deeper appreciation of ballet.

As one of our closest friends you can enjoy a range of exclusive benefits including social events, special behind-the-scenes access, experience our creative process and see our dancers’ development up-close, as well as advance information and priority booking for the best seats for our productions.

Together, we can become the most exciting and creative ballet company in the world.
