We invite you to join the vibrant staff community of Canada's National Ballet School (NBS)! Your talent, innovation, and determination can help NBS continue to share the transformative power of dance with people of all ages, abilities, and aspirations.
At NBS, programming excellence, access and inclusion fuel our belief in sharing the transformative power of dance. This is what drives our commitment to making dance a part of all Canadians’ lives. For 60+ years, NBS has been Canada’s leader in ballet education, developing and evolving pedagogy and practices to centre the dancer’s experience and wellbeing.
We recognize our responsibility, as Canada’s largest arts training organization and one of its oldest, to address racialization and anti-Black racism, reconciliation with Indigenous peoples and systemic oppression within the sector and beyond. Central to this mission is a commitment to equity-informed practices; driving systemic, progressive change by evolving dance education. Building an inclusive sense of belonging at NBS for every dancer and employee is the School’s primary imperative.
NBS continues to use evidence-based practice to address barriers and expand our program offerings to engage more people than ever before; striving to reach individuals and communities historically and presently underrepresented within the art of ballet.
