English National Ballet brings world-class classical ballet to the widest possible audience – delighting them with the traditional and inspiring them with the new. 

Under the leadership of Artistic Director, Tamara Rojo, the Company stands for artistic excellence and creativity.

We honour the tradition of great classical ballet while embracing change, evolving the art form for future generations and encouraging audiences to deepen their appreciation of it.

As a charitable organisation, all our income from ticket sales and fundraising goes towards achieving these goals through performances, engagement programmes and more.
