support us

As a charity, YBS (Registered Charity No 1107179) depends upon the generosity of our Patrons and Friends. We receive no government funding. This generosity enables us to give Scholarships and Bursaries to deserving students and so enable many to attend who would otherwise not have the chance.


help us continue & extend our work

By becoming a Friend of YBS, you will first and foremost be supporting our work. In addition, we can offer some exciting benefits – necessarily modest: we are only a small charity!

Friends will receive:

  • A Newsletter twice a year by email only containing news and views from the Director, students and teachers.

  • A chance of priority booking to watch students in class during the Summer School

  • A chance to attend a Reception for Friends watching class on one evening during the Summer School after class and to meet teachers and students



join the 100 club

Pay £100 a year for 3 years.

100 Club members will receive:

  • All benefits available to Friends

  • A chance to attend an evening Masterclass given by a world renowned star of international ballet

  • Priority booking for all fundraising events



join the patrons circle

Pay £500 or more a year to support our work. Patrons who wish to fund Scholarships and Bursaries should specify this request and we will hope to accommodate you.

Patrons will receive:

  • All benefits available to Friends and 100 Club members

  • For Patrons funding a Scholarship or Bursary, information about the student awarded a Scholarship or Bursary and what attending the Summer School means to him or her.  Patrons will not be able to enter into direct communication with students whom they sponsor
