Friends of the European Ballet
‘For the love of ballet, please become a Friend!’
As we mentioned on the ‘About EB’ page, it is quite a struggle for the European Ballet Company to survive and keep on performing the way it does, bringing ballet artistry to thousands of audience members every year, in around 100 theatre venues right across the UK.
Director and creator of the European Ballet, Stanislav Tchassov, drives and inspires the company with his boundless enthusiasm and determination. But enthusiasm and determination alone cannot always guarantee continuity.
Attend our performances! Bring your family and friends! Without our audience, we are nothing! If you enjoy our performances (we know you do!) then please drop a note to the venue management where you saw us, to say so: positive public feedback will always make it easier for us to arrange tours at such venues in the future.

In return, in acknowledgement of the value of our Friends, we try to offer something back which we know to be valued and greatly appreciated by ballet enthusiasts of all ages.
