Your gift, their future.

Our legacy

The Royal Ballet School has been at the cornerstone of British classical ballet for 90 years. Its legacy has been to provide the world with generations of renowned dancers and choreographers. The School continues to aspire to train young people with a gift and desire to dance, nurturing and refining them into talented and inspirational performers and choreographers who will follow in the footsteps of the other Royal Ballet School students such as Margot Fonteyn, Kenneth MacMillan, Anya Linden, Anthony Dowell, Antoinette Sibley, Darcey Bussell and Christopher Wheeldon

(See alumni).

Fundamental to fulfilling this objective is the generosity of those who value and support the aspirations of the School. Since its foundation, such benefactors have played an essential part in the continued success of The Royal Ballet School and its work, and our need for financial support is as real today as ever.

Your legacy

By leaving a financial legacy to The Royal Ballet School, you can help young people achieve their dreams and create dancers who awaken your passion for ballet in the audiences of the future.

Where possible, we encourage legacies to be bequeathed to our Endowment Fund where they will provide the School with a vital source of sustainable income. The Fund has a board of Trustees who are responsible for ensuring donations are applied according to the donors wishes, or where unspecified, where the need is greatest; sponsoring a student’s training, commissioning new choreography or developing the School’s facilities.

If you would like to remember The Royal Ballet School in your will, please download our Legacy Leaflet or contact Judith Howard in our Development Department who will be happy to discuss this further.
