A Student Performance of the Highest Standards…
NBS prides itself that talent is the sole criterion for entry to the School, and we look forward to raising the ‘barre’ with another exceptional performance by the skillfully trained and gifted students of the Professional Ballet Program. The performance will be held on the historic stage of The Carlu’s Concert Hall; the same stage that once presented the first performance by The National Ballet of Canada.
As it does for Terry and Nickie in the film An Affair to Remember, let’s let ballet bring us together!
