Share the Magic

Giving Joy to Children and Families

The National Ballet of Canada’s Share the Magic programme provides a unique and memorable experience to community members who would not normally have the opportunity to enjoy live ballet performances. With the generous support of our community of donors, Share the Magic has brought the joy of dance to 110,000 children and family members since 1986.

To invite attendees each year, the National Ballet partners with social service and support agencies and high needs schools representing Toronto's underserviced neighbourhoods. These organizations include Childrens' Aid Societies, Native Child and Family Services, Child Development Institute, Dixon Hall School of Music, Equal Opportunity, Stepstones for Youth, Horizon's Youth Program and many more.

If you're able, please donate today to give the gift of joy to children this holiday season. The National Ballet is looking to invite 1,600 children and family members to enjoy The Nutcracker on December 7.
