Governors

In 1956 Queen Elizabeth II granted the then Sadler’s Wells Ballet, Sadler’s Wells Theatre Ballet and Sadler’s Wells School a Royal Charter, and they became respectively The Royal Ballet and Royal Ballet School. Under the Charter a body of Governors was set up whose ultimate duty it is to safeguard the future of the Company (now The Royal Ballet and Birmingham Royal Ballet) and School, and to be the custodians of the traditions established by Dame Ninette de Valois in the formation of the Company and School in 1931.
