Nurturing creativity, artistic expression and passion

The impact of annual gifts to The Australian Ballet School can be seen through our graduating students performing nationally and internationally. Contributions make possible our scholarships programme and school performances, and provide support to our Student Residence – Marilyn Rowe House. Your gift facilitates the training and development of all our students, and extends care, safety and security to dancers who have moved to Melbourne to pursue their dreams. Your 100% tax deductible gift is a wonderful way to keep our excellence and innovation alive.

Today, we invite you to join the Patrons Programme so you too can play a role in the School’s bright future. Our Patrons Programme seeks committed annual support, starting at $500. Donations may be directed towards our Scholarships Fund, Marilyn Rowe House Fund, or Core Activities – by selecting Core Activities, you give us the flexibility to allocate funds to areas of most urgent need. If you would like to support The Australian Ballet School, or discuss your giving options, please contact our Development Office by phoning 03 9669 2807 or emailing
