‘The 500 Club Initiative’

Elmhurst Ballet School has launched a new initiative specially designed for its business audience: The 500 CLUB invites support from businesses for the school’s talented and ambitious young students in need, who are training to become the next generation of ballet dancers.

Principal of Elmhurst Ballet School, Jessica Wheeler said: “We are launching our new 500 CLUB in response to interest in the school from local businesses who are keen to support the next generation of elite ballet dancers – talented young people who come from diverse social, cultural and financial backgrounds. As we know, there is a strong and dynamic relationship between a healthy cultural economy and a thriving locality where people like to live and do business. Our world-leading school nurtures individuality to help talented young people from all walks of life to take their places on the world stage. Philanthropic support is critical to all their futures.”

Annual membership for the 500 CLUB is just £500. Benefits to the business will include: an annual networking event at the school with a short performance by Elmhurst Ballet School students in the school’s 220 seat studio theatre, profile on Elmhurst’s website and relevant school literature, such as the annual summer shows’ programme – all seen by local, national and international audiences; early bird opportunities to buy tickets for school performances and events; and a regular newsletter.
