Our Supporters

Thank you to our supporters, who directly enable us to both sustain and expand our work with young dancers and educators of different backgrounds from all over the country. From invaluable multi-year donations awarded by Trusts and Foundations and grants enabling us to deliver specific projects, to support from generous individual Appeal donors and members of our brand new Giving Circles, we hugely appreciate all gifts, large and small.

We are grateful to every individual and organisation who has supported the NYB family. We express particular thanks to the Fone family for their generous legacy support from the Jill Tookey Estate.
