The Group's Purpose

We are very proud of our dancers. Their strong work ethic helps them succeed each day in practice and performance - please help us help them in ensuring they are set up for success in their lives after dance.

When you become a donating partner a percentage of your donation will go directly to employing our dancers during their off-season performances.

These internships will support our dancers in their post-dance career by providing key skills and experiences that will enable our dancers to effectively and efficiently transition into a career after dance.

Your generous support will allow the Alberta Ballet to hire dancers within our various departments and provide them with key career development skills.

We will also be working with local organizations who would like to support by hiring one of our dancers during the off-season.

Make difference in what someone can become!

How to Help

25% of donations in this program will be assigned to the professional development of the Dancer’s career post-dance.
Your investment will help the Alberta Ballet employ dancers with internships either at Alberta Ballet or with Alberta-based companies interested in working with Alberta Ballet toward this cause.

The remainder of your donation supports continued dancer performances, new and existing artistic creation and organizational support for the art of ballet.
