The Shine Fundraising Gala held by Canada’s National Ballet School (NBS) on February 5th, sought to shine the spotlight on NBS. Current NBS students performed several works, highlighting the night’s themes of the beauty of dance, the talent and determination required to succeed, and NBS’ role as a leading training institution in Canada. Over $800,000 was raised, which NBS says will be used to maintain its policy of “talent being the sole criterion for acceptance into the School’s Professional Ballet Program.”
