Who we are

Friends of ESB is a worldwide community of people following the journey of aspiring dancers at the European School of Ballet, one of the world’s top ballet schools. Our goal is to support ESB’s unique philosophy and its educational and artistic aims.


What we do

The European School of Ballet selects its students on the basis of talent, potential, and achievement, taking pride in assisting with full or partial scholarships aspiring dancers from less economically advantaged backgrounds. In order to realize their dreams, ESB counts on the ongoing generosity of donors who financially contribute to the non-governmental school’s educational and artistic programs.
