Board of trustees

Ballet Black continues to provide the UK with a volume of new and exciting choreographic works. Commissioning from a wealth of diverse talent, the Company is seen both as a platform for great artistic direction and as a means to assist the development and raise the profile of all culturally diverse dancers.

We support more than a professional ballet company. We also run the Ballet Black Junior School with subsidised classes so that all have a chance to experience ballet and our Associate Programme forms a natural bridge between the School and those who wish to extend their ballet towards a professional level.
