Support Us - Overview

Supporters of The Australian Ballet School help nurture the creativity, artistic expression and passion of our students. Contributions make our scholarships programme possible and also lend valuable support to our performances and our student residence Marilyn Rowe House. A donation to the School facilitates the training and development of all our students, and extends care, safety and security to dancers who have moved to Melbourne to pursue their dreams. Your 100% tax deductible gift is a wonderful way to keep our excellence and innovation alive.

"help nurture the creativity, artistic expression
and passion of our students"

Today, we invite you to join the Patrons Programme and, through an annual gift, play an important role in the School’s bright future.

The other ways in which you can support the School include giving a Scholarship to help students with the cost of full-time training, leaving a Legacy to support the future of ballet education or make a one-off Donation towards one of our core funds.

Our Pas de Deux programme gives organisations an opportunity to partner with the stars of tomorrow; helping students reach their full potential while benefiting from all that comes via the energy, youth and magic of a performing arts school.

Another way to help the School and join our community is to join Friends of The Australian Ballet School. Our Friends gain a ‘behind the scenes’ view into the School via special events and access to exclusive content on our website.

Our Alumni Program keeps the School connected to its past students and creates all sorts of opportunities for the whole ballet community to stay connected, educated and supported.

We would like to extend our deepest thanks and acknowledge all those who have already helped make The Australian Ballet School a success. The future of ballet in Australia is in your excellent hands.
