Keep the Music Live

Keep the Music Live

About This Campaign

Take yourself back to your first live ballet experience – the excitement of entering the theatre, hearing the orchestra tune, and applauding as the conductor enters the orchestra pit. Then the magical moment when the curtain lifts...

With your support, Alberta Ballet is able to present world class productions as they are meant to be experienced, with ballet artists and musicians moving together in perfect harmony.

Next season Alberta Ballet will invest over $500,000 to present awe inspiring performances enhanced by live music from the Calgary Philharmonic and Edmonton Symphony Orchestras. Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker will thrill children of all ages, and Prokofiev’s romantic Romeo & Juliet score will create a power and physicality of sound that will match our world-class artists on the stage.

With your help and donation of $10 or more, we can reach our goal of raising $60,000 by June 30. Please help us KEEP THE MUSIC LIVE!

Campaign to Support 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.

    I'm sorry my donation isn't for more as I love having the orchestra playing at the ballet. Live music from such wonderful musicians makes the experience so much more enjoyable. A big Thank You to all the musicians!
