LCB is a charitable trust, funded primarily through the generosity of individuals, trusts and foundations and companies. The LCB Trust changes the lives of young dancers, gives transformational career opportunities to emerging composers, choreographers and designers, offers access to ballet to those who could never normally afford it and brings ballet performances to those who can’t physically visit the theatre.
It is often assumed that the cost of running the LCB is covered by theatre ticket sales. This is far from the case. Although we sell out, LCB needs to raise a considerable sum annually to deliver our professional productions and outreach work in the community.
The work of LCB impacts over 10,000 people every year. You can see some of our statistics here.
Whether you would like to give £5 a month or join our Artistic Director's Circle at £5,000, there are a number of ways in which you can give financially to LCB's charitable work.
LCB offers the 4-month rehearsal, training and performance experience for free to every dancer. You can give a child the opportunity of a lifetime by sponsoring their place in the Company or on an LCB2 tour.
We run a number of thriving programmes in the community, bringing LCB's ballets to people who cannot attend the theatre productions. You can give directly to these programmes.
Companies can support the LCB by becoming a Corporate Capital Partner, sponsoring a particular programme or event, or by taking out an advertising page.
