Become a Friend Volunteer and be involved:
Once you have become a Friend of The Royal Ballet School, you might also want to consider joining our Friends Volunteer Programme.
Our current group has proved invaluable, helping out during busy times at the School, assisting us with events and other activities. This is a great opportunity for you to be involved in the day-to-day running of the School, while sharing the experience with a group of like-minded dance enthusiasts.
If you do decide to join the Friends and would like to contribute as a volunteer please let us know at email@example.com
Here’s what some of our members have said about the Friends Programme:
‘I leave every Open Day on a 'high' - having been infected by the enthusiasm, dedication and sheer hard work of the students and their teachers.’
‘Always a highlight to walk through The Royal Ballet School’s doors!’
‘The volunteering opportunities for Friends give a unique insight into the School. It was a pleasure to help and I felt really appreciated.’
See our Calendar for current performance and event listings.
We continue to welcome membership applications from new Friends throughout the year. However, please note that availability for priority events reduces as each academic year progresses.
