It’s Ballet BC’s 25th anniversary and they will celebrate by presenting a collection of world premiere performances next week.

“We are delighted to be bringing our Vancouver audiences an exciting evening of new works by Canadian and Ballet BC alumni. We are also honoured to be collaborating with one of Canada’s leading chamber orchestras, The Turning Point Ensemble. This magnificent program of four new creations promises to be a thrilling experience for both dance and music lovers alike.” says Ballet BC Artistic Director Emily Molnar.
