On Friday, February 8th, get immersed in a Great Gatsby themed-affair at the Arcadian Court featuring cocktails and swanky dining followed by a class-act Monte Carlo casino.  There will also be an exclusive ballet performance by the NBS’ talented students.


“Because talent is the sole criterion for entry into NBS’ Professional Ballet Program, our annual fundraiser is crucial in generating awareness and securing support for our extraordinary students—of which almost 8 out of every 10 require funding.”, says Mavis Staines, NBS’ Artistic Director. “The annual gala performance highlights the determination and the artistry of our emerging young talent. Our patrons are part of a thrilling process–what better way to demonstrate appreciation than through the beauty of dance”.

Tickets are $1,000 per person available at this link or by contacting Brittany McLeod at 416.9964.3780 x2146.
