Support Anne of Green Gables - The Ballet™

Play a part in CBJ’s Production of Anne of Green Gables – The Ballet™

Canada’s Ballet Jörgen has just announced the World Premiere of Anne of Green Gables – The Ballet™. Our goal is to raise $850,000 from private donations to support the creation of this incredible ballet as well as the extensive outreach and education work the Company will deliver across Canada in conjunction with the 2019-2020 Anne of Green Gables – The Ballet™ National Tour.

To date we have raised over 70% and now we turn to our friends and supporters to help carry us to our goal.

First Position ($10 – $249)

A gift of $120 (Monthly gift of $10 or more) will cover the costs of one outreach performance in an elementary school with highlights from Anne of Green Gables – the Ballet™.  Such interactive performance provides an opportunity to learn about ballet as a storytelling medium.  The children learn basic positions, discover how to convey emotions through movement, try out some dance steps and, of course, see excerpts from ballets performed by 2 or 3 professional dancers!


Help us inspire new audiences by making a gift today!

Second Position ($250 – $499)

A gift of $300 (Monthly gift of $25 or more) will cover the costs for one local child to perform in Anne of Green Gables – the Ballet™ onstage with the Company, as part of our Local Participant program. Canada’s Ballet Jörgen’s Local Participant program offers young dancers across Canada the opportunity to perform alongside the company’s professional dancers in our major productions. Our work inspires young Canadians to embrace ballet and is a proven success in creating memories to last a lifetime.
