This initiative was launched in 2016, when Ballet Edmonton began giving free tickets to families and children who would otherwise never be able to attend a performance. Since then, Ballet Edmonton has taken dance to these youth! We partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Boys and Girls Club, along with inner city schools who serve vulnerable kids.
We provide children in Edmonton access to dance and the joy of discovering self-expression through movement. In partnership with Big Brothers Big sisters and some inner city programs that serve socially vulnerable kids, we are able to offer dance/movement programming to at-risk children and to youth whose access to dance and arts and culture is otherwise limited.
