Support Us

To ensure the Company keeps on dancing each year we need to generate financial support.  Cork City Ballet, a registered charity, receives only a small portion of its income from public funding so we are always keen to hear from individuals or corporate partners interested in helping us continue the success of our artistic, educational and community programmes.

Could you help us help our young artists develop their talent and help other young people to develop their potential?  You can make a donation by sending a cheque (made payable to Cork City Ballet) to Janet Dillon, Administrator, Cork City Ballet, Firkin Crane Theatre, Shandon, Cork, Ireland.  All donations, no matter how small, help towards our target and help us maintain the high quality of our artistic and educational output.

We are very grateful to all our supporters, without whose support we could not continue to offer the opportunities we currently do.

Alan Foley - Artistic Director

Cork City Ballet embraces a policy of engaging dancers from international companies as well as Ireland’s finest classical and contemporary dancers.

CCB promotes and encourages the ethos that ballet is for everyone.

This is achieved by its diversity of programming, which includes not just the well-loved classics, but also modern and contemporary choreography including works specially created for the company by the Artistic Director of the Company - Alan Foley.
Former ballerina with Irish National Ballet - Patricia Crosbie, and Bolshoi trained dancer and choreographer Yuri Demakov.
