As a not-for-profit organization, Alberta Ballet School is always thankful for the assistance we receive from sponsors and donors. These relationships are vital to our organization and generate the much needed funding to help us continue to offer the best programming to our students.

Our fundraising initiatives support:

Our wardrobe department supplies our entire school, both professional and open divisions with costumes. We have a minimum of six performances a year with our Year End Performance alone requiring costumes for over 500 students. The creation, maintenance and storage of these costumes is a huge undertaking. We think it is of the utmost importance that we provide all our students with the opportunity to perform in a professional environment on stage whenever possible. Any funds raised will be a huge help toward allowing this magical experience to continue.

It is vital that we provide the opportunity for live music in the classroom as we know it enhances the training experience for our students. In Edmonton and Calgary we have a total of 11 pianos that require maintenance a minimum of four times a year and 21 talented musicians who we call upon to play for classes. Live accompaniment is not always offered at other studios and we are proud to be able to support our students and local musicians in this way.

The Professional Division offers over $400,000 in scholarships each year. We want to be able to offer this training opportunity to as many students as possible. Help support these talented dancers achieve their dreams, regardless of their financial situation, by supporting their academic and artistic journey.

Our students know that dance enhances their lives. We know that dance classes enrich the lives of our children and our community.

Qualifying donations will receive a tax receipt from Alberta Ballet Company.
