Mad Hot Ballet
The National Ballet of Canada has raised over $1.2 million following its annual fundraising gala, MAD HOT BALLET, at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts in Toronto. Presented by CIBC for its 13th year and co-chaired by Rana Florida and Rochelle de Goias, this year’s event — titled Desert Dream — featured an hour-long performance with new work from choreographic associate Robert Binet, performed by dancers Skylar Campbell and Xiao Nan Yu. Following the performance, almost 2,000 guests indulged in cocktails inspired by the tastes of Morocco. The news was announced by Karen Kain, artistic director of The National Ballet of Canada, and executive director Barry Hughson.
