Alberta Ballet dancers share the behind-the-scenes world where everything culminates on stage as part of some of the most exciting live dance experiences in Canada.



In Conversation

Four Alberta Ballet dancers are in conversation after a full day of rehearsal in studio.  As a group, these four dancers represent all stages of a professional dance career.  

They discuss the arc of a professional life on stage, about needing to prepare for a post-dance career, and how the characters they play underscore how they grow as performers and dancers.
