Presenting Sponsorships

Presenting Sponsorships

The National Ballet of Canada’s annual season includes a repertoire of ballet classics and innovative new works that represent the best of Canadian and international ballet. Presenting Sponsors are affiliated with a specific production, helping to create partnerships that are mutually rewarding.

As a Presenter, your firm receives complimentary performance tickets for use by your executives and guests. We can also offer passes to dress rehearsals for your staff or create an exclusive working rehearsal event for a true behind the scenes experience.

Your corporation will benefit from a robust marketing and advertising campaign that creates significant profile. A corporate partnership is highlighted in all collateral, including the National Ballet’s own extensive print materials, online vehicles, advertising and signage. Through a presenting sponsorship, the National Ballet provides corporate partners with multiple platforms for acknowledging your support.

  •     Comprehensive audience engagement 
  •     Extended media exposure 
  •     Fulsome hospitality opportunities to entertain clients and/or employees

Sponsor Spotlight

BMO Financial Group’s legacy of support

“Our partnership with the National Ballet is an investment in one of Canada’s greatest arts organizations. We hope to enable the National Ballet to move forward with its vision.” - Nada Ristich, Senior Manager, Corporate Donations, BMO Financial Group

BMO Financial Group has provided continuous and unsurpassed support since The National Ballet of Canada was founded in 1951. Over many loyal and generous years, BMO Financial Group has provided key support during landmark events in the National Ballet’s history, including lead sponsorship of the 50th Anniversary season, for the Next Stage Campaign, of the first performances in the Four Seasons Centre and the annual season opening productions.

“It’s a wonderful partnership,” says Ms. Ristich. “We hope that through supporting the performances of new works every season will help expose the public to a wider range of productions and help provide dancers with new stories to tell through dance.”

“In supporting the arts,” Ms. Ristich says, “we are promoting Canadian institutions, both large and small, helping them move forward and fulfilling their visions. Canada has a wealth of talent – choreographers, dancers, playwrights, directors, artists and curators – that needs to be showcased.”
