How you can support us


There are two ways to offer Elmhurst support:
Corps Support
Artist Support

Corps Support

Providing our students with the outstanding training and facilities required to become a top professional dancer is an expensive undertaking. Costs can range from £70 for a pair of pointe shoes to around £70,000 to fund a student through three years of Sixth Form.

By becoming a Corps Supporter, you can help us continue to train and prepare young dancers for the professional world whilst receiving a number of benefits in recognition of your support. These include:

• termly newsletter with information about the school and students
• annual invitation to watch students in class or rehearsal
• annual card from an Elmhurst student
• opportunity to purchase tickets for our popular Summer Show and events, previously only available to parents and invited guests, and invitation to a special donors reception
• acknowledgment on website, donor board and in Summer Show programme

Artist Support

At Elmhurst, we are ambitious about what our students can achieve given the right training and opportunities. In order to inspire and progress our students, in addition to their regular training programme, we provide development opportunities such as masterclasses from renowned dancers, community outreach projects and large-scale end-of-year productions. These events are of great benefit to the students but come at considerable financial cost.

By becoming an Artist Supporter, you can help us provide valuable extra opportunities to our students as well as contributing to their regular training. In recognition of your support, you will receive all the benefits of a Corps Supporter (see above), plus and annual invitation to lunch with Elmhurst's Artistic Director and students. Artist Support starts from £75 per month or £900 annually and can be paid by standing order or cheque.
