The Dancers' Circle

JOIN AND SUPPORT

Without our Dancers’ Circle, Birmingham Royal Ballet, our 60 exceptional dancers and renowned orchestra would not be able to continue to present world-class ballet and exciting new work.

We would be delighted to welcome you into the Company as one of our supporters and to bring you closer to our work. To join our Dancers’ Circle and support the work of Birmingham Royal Ballet please contact Matt Freeman (mattfreeman@brb.org.uk).
