La Belle Époque: NBS Gala, Canada, Thursday, 01. March 2018

Canada’s National Ballet School (NBS) will host its annual fundraising Gala on March 1, 2018, and is taking a cue from la ville-lumière; the ‘city of lights’ and of enlightenment. Paris à la Belle Époque was a place and time of both great spectacle and significant progress; a world hub for technological advancement, education, optimism, grandeur and joy. Much like Paris during “the beautiful era”, NBS today is a beacon for technological progress, profound artistry and the human spirit. The School’s programs embrace innovation to reflect the changing nature of ballet in the 21st century, and foster widespread arts education opportunities for everyone, encouraging improved health and well-being through dance and movement.

The annual Gala is NBS’s signature fundraising event of the year. It raises funds for the nearly 75% of students who require financial assistance to attend the Professional Ballet Program, and supports the development of new resources, program development, teacher training, and technological enhancements that help grow NBS’ flagship community program, Sharing Dance.

We invite you join us for an evening of cultural abundance, celebrating the creativity and vitality of NBS’ programming in the effervescent style of Parisians at the turn of the century. Your support as a young patron helps NBS share dance and open doors for the next generation of dancers.

Joie de Vivre! Joie de Danser!
