Ballet and Beyond Outreach Programme

Enjoyment of, and participation in ballet, is in danger of becoming the preserve of the wealthy, as arts education is increasingly eroded in state sector schools. We are passionate about our art. Every year, we aim to work with at least three state sector schools, to inspire an interest in ballet amongst young audiences who may never have considered ballet as a leisure activity or as a career, and to bring them new and diverse experiences.

We also participate in community events and perform with partner organisations such as care homes and hospitals, where residents may have few opportunities to experience performance art.

Typically our schools' programme will consist of a series of workshops delivered in situ, with opportunities for the students who have participated in the workshops to come to Elmhurst to watch live performances.

If you are interested in participating in our outreach programme, please email Please note,  we are currently only able to travel within the Birmingham area.
