How can I find out about future performances?
Please check out our Performances page. If nothing is listed, it means we are in the process of planning new work. Signing up to our mailing list guarantees you automatic updates about the Company’s latest news.
What age are your children’s classes for?
Check out the Ballet School link for details. We are always aiming to expand; if you do not see a class suitable for you/your child’s age group, please send us an email with BALLET SCHOOL in the title and we will let you know if/when we start any new classes.
I read that Cassa Pancho wrote a dissertation about black dancers in ballet. Where can I get a copy?
Unfortunately, “All Things Black and Beautiful” is no longer available for view, but if you are a student or journalist who would like to interview Cassa for an article or school project, please send us an email and write SCHOOL PROJECT/ARTICLE in the subject line. We try to answer all questions, but at certain times of year, we are inundated with requests. Your patience is appreciated.
Can you assist me financially?
No. Ballet Black is not a funding body – we are happy to offer advice on funding (though your guess is as good as ours!) but we cannot assist you with school fees or money of any kind.
Where can I send my CV/resume?
Please send us you CV/resume to email@example.com and write DANCER CV in the subject line. Please do not attach the text, keep it in the body of the email. Photographs can be attached if necessary.
When are your next auditions?
If you would like to audition for Ballet Black, please email us your CV/resume with DANCER CV in the subject line and we will automatically let you know of future audition dates and locations.
Do you have a phone number I can call?
Do you have an address I can write to?
No – any old addresses you might find on the Internet are now incorrect and post will not reach us. Please email us.
I am a choreographer/designer/photographer and would like to submit my work/discuss working with you – how can I do so?
Please send us an email – we are always happy to hear from new people, but please keep in mind we often have our repertoire and designs planned at least a year in advance and we are a ballet company.
Can I have a copy of one of your images?
Occasionally, we allow schools to use one of our photographs. Please email us and write IMAGE REQUEST in the subject line.
Who designed your website?
Our website was designed by Fresh Pies. Our posters, programmes and flyers are designed by Rob Clarke Design
Why haven’t I had a response to my email?
We receive hundreds of emails each week, so perhaps we haven’t reached yours yet. Otherwise, make sure you have done the following:
- If you are writing for the attention of the Artistic Director, please note that she doesn’t like to be referred to as Sir!
- Are you asking a question that has already been answered somewhere on the site?
- If you have sent an email with an attachment, we may not open it. Please re-send with your question/information/CV in the body of the email text.
