Celebrate the Power of Live Performance
December 2, 2021
When Principal Dancer Jurgita Dronina stepped onto the stage for the first time in 20 months, she knew it was a unique moment. “The feeling of coming home,” she said, “this is where my soul is, it is so special.”
Indeed every audience member who watched The National Ballet of Canada perform once again shared in Jurgita’s anticipation, excitement, joy and sense of homecoming.
Donor generosity and the commitment of subscribers helped Jurgita and the entire company weather the challenges of the pandemic, and as a result, we were prepared to return to the stage to perform for you.
We all remember the feeling we had when we were unable to gather in person to experience live performance. More than ever, we understand that coming together as an audience fulfills our need for human connection and the sense of community that we have craved for so long.
Our artists thrive on human touch and connection with an audience – and you, our audience members and donors, understand how essential the arts are to your wellbeing and quality of life.
Donate today so we can continue to share the beauty, connection and hope that dance inspires, and help uplift audiences with the power of great art.
A gift will help sustain our live performances and our shared belief in the beautiful moments of community that dance can create.
“A ground-breaking work to start the new post-pandemic era! Bravo to everyone, you are bringing us all back to life.”
Barbara Mair, donor and subscriber
“It was a joy to be present with so many others once again and experience the excellence of the dancers and the orchestra. What a treasure we have in The National Ballet of Canada!”
