In light of announcements made by various specialists, among them those from Public Health, stressing the difficulties inherent in the pandemic being experienced particularly by more fragile clienteles such as seniors and people suffering from mental-health, Les Grands Ballets has wanted to extend its mission and expand its social and community mandate by forging a relationship with a new clientele that would be the first to benefit from the series Gratitude and Generosity.
With this program we hope to offer human contact to those who have suffered most, by bringing them beauty and gentleness – reflecting as we do the values that made up the DNA of Les Grands Ballets: social justice, diversity and inclusiveness without labeling.
In brief, the series Gratitude and Generosity is intended for all those living through an economically precarious situation, or one of social exclusion, emotional distress or marginalization.
Les Grands Ballets, with the contribution of the National Centre for Dance Therapy (NCDT) and of donors, would like to have these clienteles attend exceptional private performances.
Between mid-May and September 2021, at Les Grands Ballets Studio-Théâtre, 8 private rehearsals of an intimate character will take place at which these latter-day heroes can enjoy a moment of entertainment, of happiness and of healing.
Ivan Cavallari, artistic director, in the company of the troupe’s dancers, will be delighted to perform the role of master of ceremonies for the occasion.
