Friends of the Australian Ballet (NSW) is focused on making ballet accessible, inviting and inclusive through inspiring and deeply valued partnerships:
The Australian Ballet
Friends of the Australian Ballet (NSW) has been a proud supporter of The Australian Ballet since FABs inception in 1973.
The Friends work closely with The Australian Ballet to share news, insights and opportunities that allow our members to connect more intimately with ballet and increase support and appreciation for the art form.
Major donations in recent years have enabled The Friends to be credited as a production sponsor, becoming the custodian of The Lilac Fairy character in David McAllister’s premiere production of The Sleeping Beauty and Crassus in The Australian Ballet’s Spartacus.

The Australian Ballet School
Friends of the Australian Ballet (NSW) have close working ties with the Australian Ballet School. In 2016 this relationship was formalised to include a new scholarship assisting young dancers with their training.
The Friends work closely with The Australian Ballet School to profile, encourage and support forthcoming generations of talent.
The Friends of the Australian Ballet (NSW) Ltd Scholarship is awarded annually at the completion of the ABS School year to a NSW student in Level 8 the following year. The scholarship is equal to The Australian Ballet Schools tuition fees to the value of $10,000.
