Please help fulfil the dream of a young dancer, leave a gift in your will to The Royal Ballet School

As a registered charity, The Royal Ballet School relies on the generosity of individuals to sustain the excellence of its training and education. One lasting way you can support the School and future generations of talented dancers is to leave a gift in your will. Any gift in your will makes a real difference and costs nothing in your lifetime.


Although it’s not something we like to think about, having a will in place is similar to having house or car insurance. Writing a will is important at any stage of life; everyone has something to leave behind and having a will ensures your wishes are fulfilled.

  • Bursaries for students from lower income families; 91% of our students receive financial support
  • The Healthy Dancer Programme, providing pioneering and outstanding healthcare to our students
  • The Hardship Fund to assist families with additional costs such as ballet shoes, music lessons, travel and auditions
