Performance sponsorship

Sponsor our 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 comprising four performances at Opera Holland Park and concluding 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 Opera Holland Park 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 and VIP reception

Sponsor our repertoire

Every year we source a variety of classical and contemporary repertoire to showcase the skills of the students at the various stages of their development, ranging from heritage ballet to more recently created works.

These ballets are performed by the students during overseas tours and as part of the Summer Performances at the Royal Opera House.

Choreographers or guest teachers come to the School to teach the students the work and to set it for the Opera Holland Park and/or Royal Opera House stage. Sponsorship is required to meet the cost of their travel, accommodation and fees and often performance rights and music licences.

Sponsorship of the repertoire is between £5,000 and £10,000.

 

Support choreography

We aim to commission two or three new choreographic works each year from established and emerging choreographers.

These form an exciting feature in the Summer Performances at Opera Holland Park and the Royal Opera House and are often performed on overseas tours. Working collaboratively with the students, choreographers create their work on site in the School’s studios. The cost of their fees, airfares and accommodation all have to be met and the School is constantly seeking support for these exciting new works.

Sponsorship of a new choreography is between £5,000 and £10,000.

Repertoire and choreographic sponsors receive:

  • Opportunity to watch the choreographer or guest teacher rehearse/create on the students
  • VIP tickets to the Summer Performances at Opera Holland Park and the Royal Opera House
  • Acknowledgement in the printed programmes
  • Inclusion in any media and promotional material relating to the performance
  • Invitations to other Royal Ballet School events throughout the year
  • Grateful acknowledgement on the School’s website and in its Annual Report
  • Encore – The Royal Ballet School’s biannual e-newsletter
