For every dancer rehearsing for a new performance and for every choreographer preparing a new piece, there is an audience anticipating another magical night at the ballet. A lifelong love of dance richly connects those onstage with those who appreciate their work: the thrill of an opening night, the pride in following the career of a local talent over many years, and the satisfaction in supporting an artform that has brought so much joy.

Include the Ballet Foundation of New Zealand in your will as a meaningful way of honouring the love of ballet that you have enjoyed in your lifetime.

Make a donation to the Ballet Foundation’s sustainable fund to provide long-term stability for ballet in New Zealand.

By investing in the future of ballet in this country, you will be sharing the transcendent experience of dance with generations of New Zealanders to come.
