A Nutcracker Miracle: Send a child in need to Alberta Ballet's The Nutcracker

A Nutcracker Miracle: Send a child in need to Alberta Ballet's The Nutcracker
Alberta Ballet believes that live ballet is something every child should experience, regardless of their economic situation. For this holiday season, we are teaming up with our community partner Kids Up Front to provide the opportunity for underprivileged children and their families to attend The Nutcracker Dress Rehearsal. We have set a goal of raising $10,000 in order to provide 1,000 children and their families with this unforgettable holiday experience. Alberta Ballet's The Nutcracker is a family classic that tells the magical tale of Klara and her Nutcracker defeating the evil Rat Tsar and his army of mice. Set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless score, this dazzling production is a holiday favorite around the world. We hope you will join us in making it accessible to children of all economic means.

In Support of Alberta Ballet

Alberta Ballet has an outstanding national and international reputation for artistic excellence. The company has caught the world's attention with its innovative 'portrait ballets' - showcasing collaborations with some of the world's most popular music icons including Joni Mitchell, Sir Elton John, Sarah McLachlan, and k.d. lang. We have presented the most venerated classics, including Swan Lake and Giselle, and have welcomed some of the most sought after companies to our stage. Our 48 week season and 32 classically trained professional dancers makes us the largest arts organization in Alberta, the second largest ballet company in Canada, and the tenth largest in North America.

For 24 years, Alberta Ballet has run one of the most highly-regarded dance schools in Canada. We offer a fully accredited Academic Program for over 100 students in addition to offering ballet, jazz and contemporary classes to more than 500 students of all ages. The School of Alberta Ballet is crucial to the future of the company, as we train the next generation of artists.

Our Education and Outreach initiatives reach 20,000 Albertans each year. Programs such as Let’s Dance bring free creative movement classes to preschoolers with special needs as well as high-risk Aboriginal Youth. Emerging Artists EN Tour brings the magic of dance to school children in rural communities throughout Alberta.
