In response to the war in Ukraine, many ballet schools in Ireland are opening their doors to those who have been forced to flee their homes.  This is a list of ballet school all over Ireland who are offering places in their classes to Ukrainian refugees free of charge.

As ballet teachers we aim to provide a place of safety, joy and community. We are working together to ensure that we can support those in need in the best way we can. Please share this list with anyone who may benefit; including Ukrainian families, community groups, schools and other ballet teachers.

We stand with Ukraine.
