Our Friend


We need your help!

Our Friends are people who want to form a closer association with Ballet Ireland and want to play a role in the success of the company.

Your financial support goes towards our pointe shoe & costume fund, providing valuable experiences for primary schools students through our Education Programme, and creating new work for audiences to experience and be inspired by.


Why become a Friend of Ballet Ireland?

Thanks to the generosity of our Friends we are able to present the work we do. Our Friends provide additional support to that already provided by the Arts Council. This ensures that Ballet Ireland can grow artistically and provide an extensive curriculum-based education outreach programme.
