October 2020 update on live performances and events at the NAC.

NAC Dance Dress Rehearsal

Welcome teachers and students! Welcome to those who are devotees and those who are new to the art form.

Each season, we are thrilled to offer an open dress rehearsal of the holiday favourite Nutcracker  especially for a student audience. This year, Nutcracker is performed by Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet and—as always—accompanied by the wonderful National Arts Centre Orchestra! The dress rehearsal is open to all ages.

Experience the richness of Life in Motion. A world of Dance in Ottawa.

In our regular dance season there are many performances that would be compelling and engaging, educational and entertaining for your students. We invite you to consider bringing a school group to an evening performance or come and enjoy dance with your own family.
