Celebrating 75 Years

As we enter our 75th season, we reflect on our proudest moments and look forward to the future. From the origins of the company, beginning in 1939, receiving our Royal Designation in 1953 and the opening of our internationally recognized Professional Division School in 1970, to the creation and presentation of bold new ballets such as Dracula, Moulin Rouge® - The Ballet and The Handmaid’s Tale, we are thrilled to celebrate all that has been accomplished throughout our 75 years.

Your support to the Diamond Gala will enable the Royal Winnipeg Ballet to continue to present the highest standard of excellence in Canadian dance to communities across our country and around the world. It will also provide opportunities for aspiring young dancers to pursue their dream and achieve their potential as our future artists.
