Public Programmes

Cultivating an interest in the arts and promoting dance and physical movement as a creative outlet are central parts of the National Ballet's mandate to enrich the lives of Canadians. Through a number of education and outreach programmes, the National Ballet captivates imaginations, developing a deeper understanding of the arts. These exciting programmes are designed to be accessible to everyone because it is our responsibility to keep ballet, and all the arts, vital to our community.
