Join the dance.

The Royal New Zealand Ballet belongs to all New Zealanders. We are fortunate to receive significant funding from Te Manatū Taonga, the Ministry for Culture and Heritage. But this, together with income from ticket sales, is not enough to sustain the RNZB’s work as a truly national company. Sponsorship, grants, and donations are vital to the company’s continuing success.

We need you. Every gift, of any size, makes a difference, and is always put to good use.

There is a place for each individual who wants to express a love of ballet and a way for every company or trust to invest in the cultural heart of New Zealand life.

Explore the opportunities both for individuals and partners and trusts below, and join the dance.
