The Australian Ballet School

Support the future of Australian ballet


The Australian Ballet School’s extraordinary level of training and care to our future dancers would not be possible without our donors. With two-thirds of our annual funding derived from non-government sources, donors are critical to our ability to empower tomorrow’s dancers to dream big.

Through our unique full-time training programme, unparalleled student services beyond the studios - including a boarding programme to care for young dancers who have moved to Melbourne to pursue their ballet dreams, and expanded dance education for up to 2,200 young dancers annually as part of our national audition tour, masterclasses and community programmes.

There are numerous areas to support and ways to give. You will make a difference to the lives of our students and the future of ballet in Australia and beyond.
