One of our beloved annual fundraisers, the Scholarship Showcase is a celebratory fall event that includes a reception, silent auction and wonderful performances from students who won Vancouver Ballet Society scholarships that year. The money we raise goes towards the next years Spring Seminar Scholarship program.
The 2016 Scholarship Showcase promises to offer more of what the Vancouver Dance Community loves from the event: wonderful performances by some of our 2016 scholarship winners (past VBS scholarship winners include the National Ballet of Canada’s Heather Ogden and Royal Birmingham Ballet’s Celine Gittens), an exciting silent auction with items like hockey tickets and other wonderful finds, and a special toast to the Vancouver Ballet Society as we turn 70 years old!
This year includes the induction of Renee Cherrier into the BC entertainment Hall of Fame as a part of our festivities. Cherrier was a Vancouver Ballet Society scholarship winner 40 years ago and she will be inducted into the BC entertainment Hall of Fame during our Gala. She is being recognized for her long career as a dancer; she trained with Alexandra Danilova, Jacques D’Amboise and Carmelita Maracci, performed in musicals with Jerry Orbach and Chita Rivera, and is known for her work with Kenny Rogers and Wayne & Shuster.
