Professional dancer or not, everyone appreciates the beauty of ballet. The National Ballet of Canada was established by dancer Celia Franca and is the only Canadian company to present a full range of traditional full-evening ballet classics. Its debut performance took place at the Eaton Auditorium (Toronto, Ontario) on November 12, 1951 with an engaging program that included Les Sylphides and Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor. One of the top ballet companies in the world, the National Ballet of Canada is home to some of the best talents in dance-notably, choreographer James Kudelka, and Karen Kain, the company's principal dancer for 28 years.


This year, the 2001 Canadian Proof Silver Dollar commemorates the 50th anniversary of one of the top ballet companies in the world: the National Ballet of Canada. Share the passion of its first performance of Les Sylphides with a perfect arabesque struck on the surface of this commemorative coin.
