NCB is not just another supplemental training option; it’s a platform for young artists to explore, diversify, and express their personal narratives.

We are here to encourage artistic authenticity, creative freedom, and meaningful production and performance opportunities in contemporary ballet. We do this by supporting, educating, and challenging our young artists to take creative risks and challenge societal norms. We commit to fostering an inherent love for the arts and instilling a sense of pride and reverence for the process that each artist must go through to achieve the desired outcome.

Our vision is to contribute to Vancouver Island’s dynamic, strong artistic community and Canadian art culture through professional level training, performance, and experiences with communities across the West Coast.

Our mandate is to provide young artists with authentic and sincere artistic platform by offering performance opportunities, professional workshops, exchanges, and other meaningful events to the public.

A vibrant contemporary ballet platform in Nanaimo since 2016, Nanaimo Contemporary Ballet was created to promote and expand contemporary ballet knowledge to emerging dancers and the public by creating thought provoking and unforgettable productions.

Dancers that have grown through the NCB experience are versatile, authentic and communicative.
