‘Ballet Cymru are a small, but hugely talented company who deliver fresh and original productions every year, and I love being their ‘Friend’. It has given me the unique chance to be more than just a member of the audience and get behind the scenes to see how the productions are brought to life. I have had the chance to meet the dancers and see them rehearse, been invited to pre-show talks with the artistic director and exclusive ‘Evenings’ filled with rehearsals, teasers of new material, and exclusive performances by the dancers. Most of all it is a real opportunity to support a company that gives me so much pleasure.’

Lauren Jones – Friend of Ballet Cymru

 ‘It was a great privilege to be invited for a look behind the scenes, a world that most audience members will never see‘.

David Williams – Friend of Ballet Cymru
