The Harlow Ballet Association
The Harlow Ballet Association has a thriving membership base. Members receive a regular newsletter, The Balletomane, and advance booking information and they also have the opportunity to participate in social events. The Annual General Meeting of the Association is held in April or May each year, after the major production in the Harlow Playhouse. The Harlow Ballet Association is bound by its Articles of Association (see below) and exists primarily to put on performances at The Playhouse. The next AGM of the Harlow Ballet Association will be held as soon as the Covid situation allows..
