Story

Ballet Cymru want to create access for all to the art of Ballet. Please help us to raise funds to make our premises 100% accessible.We would like to install a platform lift to access offices on the first floor, and improve access to the building on the ground floor.

Ballet Cymru offers a diverse range of activities, from workshops in schools to creative inclusive dance sessions, touch tours and audio described performances. Ballet Cymru Dancer Apprentice and wheelchair user, Joseph Powell-Main:

"this is a huge step towards inclusivity in the classical ballet world and will hopefully help increase opportunities for all differently abled dancers."
