How You Can Support Us

We rely on our donors to help fund and further Central’s core activities, delivering world-class dance training at degree level. Together with donors and supporters we provide the opportunity for young dancers with talent to pursue their dream of working in the professional dance industry.

Central’s vocational degree courses in dance at undergraduate and postgraduate level provide a tailored and rigorous curriculum and the support services to ensure our graduates are physically and mentally prepared for their chosen careers.

Undergraduate students attend classes and training sessions six days a week, where Ballet tuition is the focus alongside Contemporary dance with supplementary studies in Jazz and Choreography. The teaching also guides students to use this knowledge in a rehearsal and professional performance situation including solo and group pieces, and work for public performance.

This intense and wide-ranging curriculum costs more than double the fees paid by UK students. Central is grateful to those supporters who help us to fund our specialist services, highly skilled tutors, and choreographers to inspire and transform the future of young talented people seeking to achieve their goals.

By making a gift, remembering Central in your Will or supporting Ballet Central, you can ensure that we can continue to offer dancers from diverse backgrounds the opportunity to explore new pathways into dance and to deliver our exceptional training to many more talented young dancers.
