About the organisation
The Friends of the Australian Ballet (FAB) (www.fab.org.au) is an independent, not-for-profit, membership-based company limited by guarantee, established in 1973 that has been connecting members and inspiring ballet audiences for almost 50 years. Our goal is to make ballet accessible, inviting and inclusive by connecting ballet lovers to The Australian Ballet Company through behind-the-scenes information, access and events.
FAB is the principal support organisation for The Australian Ballet in NSW and is committed to developing talent through projects and scholarships with The Australian Ballet (TAB), and students of The Australian Ballet School (TABS).
The principal activities of FAB are:
- Creating a community of friends and ballet lovers by offering behind-the-scenes access to the world of dance through dress rehearsals, events and member engagement.
- Fund raising through events, including dress rehearsals by TAB at the Sydney Opera House, to support TAB and TABS.
- Building the profile of FAB and delivering strong and diverse membership growth to ensure the continued support to TAB and TABS.
FAB works closely with teams from TAB and TABS to deliver events and activities in association with the programs of both of these organisations. 2023 will mark the 50th anniversary of FAB and the 60th anniversary of TAB and will provide a significant opportunity for fundraising and membership growth.
FAB is managed by two distinct part-time positions. These roles are the General Manager and the Events and Marketing Manager. The General Manager reports directly to the Chair of FAB. Both roles work closely together as an effective, efficient and unified team, with a degree of independence and self-direction based on individual professional experience and skillsets. Success of this team also requires a significant degree of sharing and follow-through of tasks and maintaining a support for each of the roles.
