Chance to Dance Appeal

After 27 amazing years of reaching children in Lambeth and Southwark and, more recently, Thurrock, we are now building a national presence to ensure that we give even more children across the UK access to ballet. We are working collaboratively with local and national dance education partners to model best practice in the creative teaching of ballet, and to establish more accessible routes to dance especially for those who face difficulty accessing existing opportunities.

To that end, we are no longer running our annual Chance to Dance Appeal. We are so appreciative of your support, which has helped thousands of children experience the magic of live ballet.

If you would like to continue your involvement with learning and participation activities at the Royal Opera House, please do contact Georgie Barry on +44 (0)20 7212 9127 or via email to We’ll also be talking about our learning and participation activities in our Annual Fund, which runs again in April 2019.
