Friends' Corps Events

Friends' Corps Events

The National Ballet of Canada’s primary concern is the health and safety of our patrons, artists, staff and community. We have made the difficult decision to cancel or postpone all remaining donor events for the 2019/20 season. Read all updates regarding COVID-19.

Join us in the 2019/20 season

Friends' Corps members at the PliƩ level or higher are able to enjoy a selection of events designed to bring you behind the scenes and show you the impact of your donation.
