The Fonteyn Circle is a philanthropic initiative for ballet lovers who would like to become more closely involved in the work of The Royal Ballet.
The group’s involvement is based around Royal Ballet stage rehearsals, masterclasses and performances and offers opportunities to meet artists and staff of The Royal Ballet at receptions and other events. The Fonteyn Circle supports one production each Season and donors enjoy a specially tailored programme of involvement around that production.
