Director's Circle

Experience the passion.

Would you like to increase your own involvement with Scotland’s national dance company? Consider joining in with a donation from £500 per annum to become a Director’s Circle patron and support our success on stage, on screen and in our communities for us all to enjoy.

Scottish Ballet Director’s Circle patrons are full of curiosity and enthusiasm, a good mix of lifelong ballet enthusiasts, and those relatively new to the art form. Aside from a mutual love of Scottish Ballet, they all share the desire to support the things that bring joy in life.

As patrons, we have seen the company grow, rising to every challenge. They are a family and the most incredible team. We have been lucky enough to get a glimpse of how hard they work to make the moment as perfect as they can make it. We feel truly privileged to be part of, in some small way, something so very special.

Sarah & Alex Hammond-Chambers, Director’s Circle Gold Patrons
