Our vision is that young people will create the ballet of the future.

Individual Membership

Please consider joining our generous family of donors today, helping us to create the world-class artists of tomorrow!

Our members play a vital role in our success. They provide the financial bedrock we need to propel our amazing young people forward to fulfil their dreams and become the ballet stars of the future: dancers, artistic or production experts. Your pledges and regular donations are particularly appreciated, as they will enable us to plan and future-proof our ambitious programme of work.

“The National Youth Ballet has, without doubt, been one of the most inspiring and creatively developmental environments I have ever experienced” Drew McOnie, Director and Choreographer, McOnie Company

Our new Donor Circles are for passionate supporters who wish to get closer to National Youth Ballet and the NYB ‘family’ of artists, leaders and alumni, through invaluable support starting from £1,000 per annum.

Our individual ‘Company Sponsors’ may choose to be associated with the Junior or Senior Company of the Residential Performance Company, or the Dancer’s Development Experience Company, helping us give a kick start to dancers at all stages of their NYB career.

You can choose the payment option that works best for you below, with direct debits and one-off payments managed by our safe and secure payment partner CAF Donate. Direct debits are the most efficient way for NYB to welcome new donors, and can be cancelled at any time, but should you prefer a different method, please contact our Fundraising Manager Martha Oddy Boninfante, who will be pleased to accommodate your needs.

“I love supporting National Youth Ballet; it’s so rewarding to see the commitment and talent of young people enjoying a world-class ballet experience at the beginning of their performing careers, and it’s a privilege to offer our help as donors and ambassadors.  Please join me in supporting NYB”
