All of us at The National Ballet of Canada miss sharing the power of live performance with you and look forward to returning to stage when it is safe to do so. Our theatre may be dark but our dancers are finding many ways to share the joy of dance online. Each week they are coming to you LIVE from their homes, teaching ballet and workout classes, hosting Q&A’s, bake-alongs, improvising choreography in their living rooms and more. We invite you to stay connected and join us virtually!
During this time of isolation, we all need some beauty to help us through our days. To lift your spirits, we have selected some beautiful ballet moments for you to enjoy.
