The next generation of philanthropists

Founded and inspired by Global Ambassador Sarah Murdoch in 2015, the Ballet Ambassador program engages ballet lovers across Australia and welcomes them into the active life of The Australian Ballet, as the next generation of patrons.

Through an annual calendar of events, Ballet Ambassadors gain a unique opportunity to enjoy and learn more about Australia’s national ballet company, while directly supporting the artists through our health and wellbeing programs.

Ballet Ambassador Events

As one of a limited number of Ballet Ambassadors you will have access to a calendar of exclusive events, all with privileged access to our dancers and Artistic team, for a 12-month period.

This annual calendar consists of events centred around our mainstage productions in Sydney and Melbourne, our annual Storytime Ballet for children, international tours, and other special events at private homes and exclusive venues at home and abroad.

At each event you’ll enjoy fine food and premium wines, the opportunity to meet dancers and members of The Australian Ballet’s Artistic team, and of course, great seats to savour a spectacular performance.
