Student Hardship Fund

Support the dancers of tomorrow, today

Students at English National Ballet School have the passion and dedication to make classical ballet their professional career. Yet our inability to support all talented applicants wishing to join the School is often a deciding factor to them pursuing their professional training. Many of our students come from low-income families and find it difficult to support themselves during their three years of training. Currently, over 50% of our students require financial assistance to attend the School.

To maintain the diversity of our student body, we must provide alternative funding sources to this significant group of students. We can only attract the best young talent from around the globe if we can generate more funding opportunities. To realise this mission, we must increase the financial support we give, and we need your help to fulfil our ambition.
