Alberta Ballet believes that live ballet is something individuals, families and children should experience.

Thanks to the generous support from Sun Life Financial, we can share complimentary tickets with individuals and families who might not otherwise have the opportunity to share in live ballet performances.

Sun Life's award-winning Making the Arts More Accessible™ program provides access to cultural events and performances that would otherwise be financially out of reach to some. This national initiative supports two programs at Alberta Ballet: the Sun Life Financial Share the Excitement program and the Sun Life Financial Nutcracker Dream program.

With the Sun Life Financial Share the Excitement program, Alberta Ballet distributes tickets to individuals and families for performances in Calgary and Edmonton. Over the course of a season, 2000 tickets are given away as part of the program.

At Sun Life, we believe arts and culture should be celebrated in our communities, and we’re proud to provide more opportunities for individuals and families to experience the joy of ballet.
