Birmingham Royal Ballet has been so touched by the many kind messages of support from our friends across the UK, and beyond. Many have asked how they can help during this uncertain time. All donations to #BeRightBack will keep us en pointe, and delivering incredible work for years to come.
The current COVID-19 crisis has led to the cancellation of some of Birmingham Royal Ballet's performances. While we are fortunate to receive substantial funding from Arts Council England, box office income and charitable donations play a vital part in funding our work, whether it's staging inspiring performances, offering free ballet lessons for children in Birmingham, or working with dancers with disabilities.
Once theatres, schools and our studios reopen, your support will mean we can continue to perform iconic ballets nationwide, create new work, and support emerging talent. Your support will provide children from disadvantaged areas of Birmingham the chance to experience dance, and to reach their potential as dancers. Your support will continue the work of our life-changing Freefall Dance Company initiative for dancers with severe learning disabilities.
