Alberta Ballet's 'our 50 community'
Alberta Ballet was a vision and dream of two women who had been childhood friends in Edmonton. Ruth Carse and Muriel Taylor learned ballet together as teenagers and left the province to dance professionally.
But they believed that the art form born in the courts of France truly had a place in the prairies of Alberta. They would return to Edmonton to open a dance school. The school's success and reputation for exceptional performance prompted the founding of Alberta Ballet in 1966.
Today, Alberta Ballet adheres to the vision of its co-founders:
- to give Alberta the same professional ballet events seen in world class cities.
- to give ballet students a place to showcase their talent, a just reward for the hours spent perfecting the craft.
Over the years, Alberta Ballet received international acclaim for its innovative productions, most recently for its signature "Pop Ballet" series, collaborations with contemporary music icons. The newest pop ballet has engaged singer Gordon Lightfoot and will be a sweeping Canadian oeuvre, resonating with audiences from coast to coast to coast. It will be a grand finale to the 50th anniversary season!
The Our 50 Community is about connecting Albertans with both the legacy of Alberta Ballet and with a vision for the performances to come.
With a $50 donation, you will join a special milestone community in the Alberta Ballet Family. It's an opportunity for all Albertans to help launch another 50 years of Alberta Ballet!
