A letter to our patrons:
our response to COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown the world into uncertain and tumultuous times. We realize that your focus is rightfully on your own health and well-being, as well as that of your loved one’s. All of us at Ballet BC want to reassure you that our primary concern in this crisis is the health of our patrons and artistic and administrative teams.

In response to regulations by both government and health authorities, our performances of Romeo + Juliet in Victoria last week were cancelled. Additionally, our open auditions scheduled for this coming weekend have also been cancelled.

What We’re Doing Now

In an effort to engage with all of you, we invite you to a special online recent presentation of Medhi Walerski’s Romeo + Juliet, which will be available online for streaming until Monday, March 23, 2020 at 12pm PT. We hope that tuning into this stream will help you connect to artistic inspiration and bring us together, during this time of social distancing.
