This initiative was launched in 2016 when Ballet Edmonton began giving free tickets to families and children who would otherwise not be able to attend a ballet performance. Since then, Ballet Edmonton has also given free dance classes to inner-city kids to ensure they can participate in dance as a healthy activity. We partner with several Edmonton agencies, including Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Boys and Girls Club, along with inner-city schools that serve kids who need some additional support.
This year, we will offer digital classes so kids at home or school can continue to enjoy the experience of learning to dance. For more information about the types of classes we offer or how to access them, please contact us.
We believe all kids in Edmonton should have access to dance and experience the joy of self-expression through movement.
