Thank you for bringing an aspect of culture into the children’s lives that many had not experienced before. Who knows where this will lead?
Chance to Dance is the Royal Opera House’s largest and longest running learning and participation project. Since 1991 Chance to Dance has inspired over 30,000 primary children in Lambeth, Southwark and Thurrock by introducing them to the magic of ballet. The Chance to Dance Appeal supports the cost of this remarkable project. By making a donation you will be directly supporting us in our ambition to reach, inspire and enrich the lives of thousands of children.
How can you help?
- £46 could pay for a child to receive five weeks of creative ballet workshops.
- £114 could pay for 30 children to attend a demonstration.
- £237 could pay for a primary school to attend a demonstration.
- £333 could pay for a child to receive free weekly classes for a year.
- £479 could pay for a week of ballet workshops at a school.
I found [Chance to Dance] inspirational because I saw professional ballet dancers doing amazing dancing to beautiful music from magical ballets.

My child has been supported in becoming more positive in his social skills and thinking out of the box… it has also supported him with his anxiety.
