Ballet Edmonton has been entertaining Edmonton audiences for many years, but in 2012, it took an important new step – it became a professional company. With that move came new opportunities and challenges which the company has been able to meet with the help of financing from the Social Enterprise Fund.
As Edmonton’s only resident professional company, Ballet Edmonton mounts a vibrant program of neoclassical ballet, modern and contemporary dance each season. Not only does it explore the classical repertoire, they commission original work, including collaborations with other arts disciplines.
Entrepreneurs, and in particular social entrepreneurs are usually moving pretty fast.
