Vancouver Ballet Society
The Vancouver Ballet Society is a group of dedicated dance lovers incorporated to encourage the continuation of and instruction in the art of dance.
Founded in 1946 the Vancouver Ballet Society continues to be a the only umbrella dance organization in continuous operation in British Columbia for over 70 years.
Our primary mission is finding the means to continue and increase our scholarship fund so that young, talented British Columbians can be encouraged to continue their studies in what is an increasingly costly discipline, thus insuring that B.C. will continue to enjoy the sight of home-grown dancers on our own and international stages.
The Vancouver Ballet Society offers dance students exclusive Master Classes with some of Canada’s most prominent artists and companies, as well as a week long intensive workshop known as Spring Seminar, and scholarship funds. The Vancouver Ballet Society publishes the acclaimed Dance International Magazine, which is distributed world wide, and houses an extensive archive collection with pieces dating back to 1912
