Become a Patron

Become a Patron and Nurture Tomorrow's Dancers

The evidence of the impact of annual gifts to The Australian Ballet School is seen through our graduating students who are performing both nationally and internationally.

Contributions help make possible our Scholarships Programme, our School Performances, as well as providing support to our Student Residence, Marilyn Rowe House. Your gift contributes to the care, training, and development of all our students and extends care, safety and security to the dancers who have moved to Melbourne to pursue their dreams. Your 100% tax-deductible gift is a wonderful way to keep the spirit of innovation and tradition of excellence alive and thriving.

Today, we invite you to join the Patrons Programme so you too can play a role in the School’s bright future. Our Patrons Programme seeks committed annual support commencing from $500. Donations may be directed towards the Scholarships Fund, Marilyn Rowe House Fund, or Core Activities. By choosing Core Activities, you give us the flexibility to allocate funds to areas of most urgent need.

If you would like to support The Australian Ballet School, or would like to discuss your giving options, please contact our Development Office by phoning 03 9669 2807 or emailing
