Corporate Giving

A Partnership with the Private Sector

Canada's National Ballet School relies on the strong support of caring organizations who share our commitment to making a positive impact in the community. More than one-third of the philanthropic funds raised annually by NBS are donated by corporations and businesses who value the role of the arts in our society, who support the training of gifted emerging artists to fulfill their calling and who see the benefit in aligning their brand with the values and culture of excellence embodied by NBS.

Both as donors and as sponsors, corporate partners play a key role in supporting core activities, enabling exciting new initiatives and ensuring a bright future for ballet and dance in Canada.

We are pleased to offer a range of opportunities to align with your organization’s philanthropic objectives and business goals. Our long standing relationship with Estēe Lauder Companies as NBS' Spring Showcase Presenting Sponsor is an excellent example of one such corporate partnership.


Since 1959, our Spring Showcase has been a renowned annual performance tradition at Canada's National Ballet School, a mainspring performance vehicle for the students in the School's full-time Professional Ballet Program. Presenting captivating dance and celebrating leading choreographers with the community, this highly anticipated event embraces some of the most well-known classical and modern ballets of all time. We couldn't do it without the help of Estēe Lauder Companies, our Spring Showcase Presenting Sponsor for over 10 years.
