Summer performances

Without the tangible experience of performance, young dancers cannot fully understand what it takes to turn the steps they have studied into something magical and exhilarating for an audience.

We offer our students many opportunities to perfect their performance technique by encouraging them to dance in a variety of productions nationally and internationally throughout the year.

At the end of the academic year, a season of performances takes place at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. This comprises five performances in the Linbury Studio Theatre and concludes with a matinée performance on the Royal Opera House main stage, accompanied by a full orchestra.

These performances sell out almost immediately and generate much interest from the dance press.

Sponsorship opportunities are offered for both the Linbury and Royal Opera House performances.

Summer Performance Sponsors receive:

  • Prominent recognition in the printed programme
  • A full page of advertising
  • An agreed number of VIP tickets to the performance
  • A private drinks reception for the Sponsor’s guests
  • Inclusion in any press releases and promotional material relating to the performance
  • Invitations to other Royal Ballet School events throughout the year
  • Grateful acknowledgement in the School’s Annual Report
  • Encore – The Royal Ballet School’s biannual e-newsletter


Sponsorship of the Linbury Season is £20,000.

Sponsorship of The Royal Ballet School Matinée is £20,000
