Thank you to our Friends

Support from our funding bodies, media sponsors and patrons allows us to bring productions of the highest professional quality to audiences throughout Ireland. This support also enables us to facilitate dance in schools and regional theatres all over the country. Through our supporters generosity, we can continue to develop and perform the finest ballet on our stages, develop new work and nurture the next generation of artists.

Friends are valued members of the Ballet Ireland family and enjoy a range of rewarding experiences that bring them closer to the artistic process.

Joining as a Friend is a brilliant way to support Ballet Ireland, enabling us to achieve a bold vision for the Company and ensure that future generations are able to enjoy exciting ballet performances.

You’ll be the first to hear about our year-round programme of stunning performances and events, and get behind-the-scenes access, including the opportunity to attend working studio and stage rehearsals.
