Similar to dancing a pas de deux, we believe our relationship with donors is a partnership, whereby we support one another to meet mutually agreed objectives. Although these relationships will usually have a fundraising element at their core, additional objectives may be achieved by the corporate partner, related to networking, PR, brand enhancement, staff motivation or corporate entertainment.
As a company you can sponsor a student in need of financial support and enjoy witnessing their progress through the school. You can bring clients or colleagues to watch your student dance in performances and competitions and in the end-of-year performance at the Royal Opera House.
Sponsorship of Performances
Your company could become the title sponsor of the end-of-year performances at either the Linbury Studio Theatre or the Royal Opera House, where you could welcome clients or staff to a very special afternoon or evening event.
Sponsorship of Choreography
The Royal Ballet School seeks to commission new works from established choreographers for the students to perform in their overseas tours and at the end-of-year performances at the Royal Opera House. These unique pieces of choreography could have your company’s name associated with them and you could entertain your clients at their first performances.
Sponsorship of International Tours
Support from companies is sought to underwrite the cost of taking our graduate students on overseas tours to expose them to an international audience and help them secure professional contracts.
Sponsorship of events
We hold a number of high profile fundraising events during the year which carry sponsorship opportunities.
Please contact the Development Department for details.
Corporate entertaining is all about finding that unique venue where you can create a lasting impression for your guests; a once-in-a-lifetime experience, never to be forgotten.
Our state-of-the-art Upper School, located next to the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, makes a perfect venue for entertaining clients and guests. Rarely open to the public, our stunning studios are ideal for formal seated dinners or elegant buffets for up to 180 guests.
To make your event a truly unique experience, The Royal Ballet School students will treat your guests to a pre-dinner performance. A special programme will be devised for you which will incorporate a range of dance styles from classical to contemporary, giving your guests a rare insight into their training and a glimpse of the stars of the future.
The cost of your bespoke corporate evening at The Royal Ballet School is £25,000 (excludes catering). The Royal Ballet School only offers two corporate evenings each year.
